Theme Song Thursday:) When It Rains… It Pours

Did you ever have one of those days, and even weeks? Well, I’m not complaining. Oh.,,wait…yes I am.

After last week, going to the Honda dealer for a routine oil change and inspection, they ended up pulling off some plastic molding off my windshield. This was after they told me I needed a bazillion dollars worth of maintenance, including new tires. I said no. Lucky thing is, Sunday, I had a nail in a rear tire that couldn’t be fixed. If I would have had new tires, yikes! But, I did get four new tires at Walmart on Sunday for probably half of what the dealer would have charged.  Then, I went back to the dealer Monday so they could replace the molding. Next day, the windshield had a fifteen inch crack. 

I took the car in today at 9am. While I sat in the waiting room for the courtesy shuttle to take me home, I grabbed one of those free cookies by the coffee bar. Half way into the cookie, I felt something crunchy. I took it out and looked. It looked like a pony bead or some kind of hard plastic. Upon further investigation, it turned out to be my tooth. Not an ordinary tooth, but what I like to call, “MY TEN THOUSAND DOLLAR TOOTH.” It was my implant that was formerly a root canal.

The shuttle took me right to the dentist instead of home. The good news was, they were able to cement it back on. It just doesn’t give me much confidence in an implant that doesn’t even stay on a year.



But, like I said, I’m pretty lucky. Just a lot of bad luck this past week. Nothing compared to what many are going through, so I ain’t complaining, just relating. I ended up taking an Uber home. This was my first time Ubering. I was excited. This is Linda, my driver. I gave her a nice tip for my car ride of about 5 miles.


My windshield didn’t get done till after 3, and the courtesy car came to get me around 4. But, now, I have a brand new windshield.

That’s all the bad luck. The good luck is, I didn’t get charged a penny for the windshield, or fixing my tooth, and this was my first Uber car ride, so it was free too. NOW, THAT’S PRETTY GOOD LUCK, ISN’T IT?
