|Her first pancake!|
What do you do when your Westy has a flat? You contact Ellie, of course. And Ellie immediately responds with a slew of encouraging and empathetic texts, followed by a 6 page document from her "do it yourself repairs" bible to illustrate just exactly what to do next.
The manual was so great! So helpful! So straightforward and logical and divine. We immediately set to work, just a few weeks later.
The plan was simple: just unscrew the bolt from the spare tire hidey hole thing to see what we had to work with, then either change the mo-fo or drive to the tire store before replacing the flat.
|Houston, we have a problem.|
We called Mr. Man. He came, he saw, he conquered.
|He was all: "Are you sure you want me to use this jack thing?"|
|Do your thang, Mr. Man|
You guys all wish you had an Ellie sister, don't you?
You do have AAA though, right?
It was a dark, dark moment when we realized what we'd done. Mr. Man with his friendly disposition and encyclopedic knowledge of all things auto had just signed off on our service call and driven away. And our girl was all "rrrrrRRRRRrrrrrr" but no start. Permission to call granted, sister.
I answered the phone with: "There's a happy ending"
See the thing about Westy is that she is a strapping, unstoppable beast, but sometimes she just doesn't feel like starting.
But sometimes she does...
A while later I was having a happy moment with my boy, and recognizing that those particular moments have been somewhat scarce as of late, I acknowledged my gratitude and thought...
Imma try the westy.
And she started right up.
I tried to honk the horn in celebratory joy, but sometimes westy just doesn't want to honk.
She's always down for a joyride, though.
|The joy is palpable!|
