Of course you have; we all do at some point in our lives. I had 2 days like that this past week. You know, nothing horrendous, just a lot of different pains in the 'tookus.'
Let me back up a bit. Last summer, while taking my granddaughter and some friends to an event at North Side HS, (it was dark and raining like a monsoon season) I hit the curb while turning into the drive. It damaged the hubcap, rim and definitely, the tire. It was all put back together, but the seal never was quite right again; so many times, I had to put air in the tire. Two weeks ago, in another frigid spell, I had to call AAA to put my spare on because that tire was registering 9# of pressure. (Just about on the rim.)
The tire man said he sealed it as best as he could. Okay. All is good. No it isn't.
In the meantime, the handle on my Crock Pot broke off. Not a problem; I ordered a new one from Amazon for a dollar. The same time I am stewing about how I am going to afford a new rim and how I can't drive on the spare for more than 50 miles, the mailman brings my new handle. Hurray. One small bright spot. NOT! I can't get the old screw out so I can put the new handle on. I tried everything and finally, decided to spray a little WD-40 on it to loosen it
Okay, let's review: within several hours, I have a flat and can't afford a new rim (and my car dashboard says my spare has only 6# of pressure..really?), I have a fried laptop and my chili smells like WD-40.
Who says a bag of kettle corn and a glass of merlot don't go together??? They certainly did and very well, I might add.
Here is the good news. My grandson who shares my car insisted on paying for half the cost of the rim. I unplugged the laptop and let it totally die; (and said mighty prayers over it) when I plugged it back in the next morning, it worked! And the chili tasted wonderful. God certainly answered my prayers.
Anyone need a brand new handle for a Crock Pot lid? I know where there is one.
