So it's 2013 and I figured this would be a great year. 13 has always been my lucky number. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th and that turned out to be one of my best years ever!
However, on the second day of the new year I had a very scary ride into work. My brakes failed. I blew through an intersection and had to go into low gear down a hill to slow down enough to come to a stop.
I managed to get my car into a shop. Several hours later I got the bad news. Both rear cylinders were gone and the front ones were going as well. They also discovered a leak in the fuel injection system which could have potentially set my engine on fire.
I suppose I should be thankful that the catastrophic failure of the brakes alerted the mechanic to the potentially disastrous problem with the fuel injector system. Nevertheless, this soon after Christmas and New Years is not the ideal time for a huge mechanic's bill. Since this is the only vehicle we have at the moment we don't have much choice.
So, hopefully the year will get better soon. Maybe on the 13th (my birthday).
I hope all of you are having a good 2013 so far!
I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?
