poor baby

my car is almost back ... i got the call that it was ready on tuesday ... went with my friend to go see it ... it was running now ... the engine had been replaced ... however ... the windshield was still broken ... the car was still very much wet and now there were mosquitoes living inside ... also there were some electrical problems ... not so bad that you couldn't drive it ... but so bad that you shouldn't drive it ... anyway so i paid the guy and left ... funny story about the shop where i got the engine replaced ... the man who manages the place goes by abu hassan ... as does my dad ... so i like to think that was a good omen ... it was fate ... a sign ... no coincidence ... but i digress ... anyway i drove it for less than a kilometer then decided to park because i wasn't comfortable driving it in this condition ... called my friend who was driving ahead of me and told him to pull over ... we agreed to call a tow truck to take it to the electrician instead of driving it there ... it was late so we called him the next morning ... the electrician said it needed some parts ... lovely ... anyway he fixed it ... now it's at the cleaners ... it will be there for another three days ... yes it needs that much cleaning ... then it's back to the electrician ... for some final touches ... and then it's mine ... i plan on taking it to a mechanic once it's ready for a full check just to make sure everything has been taken care of ... then it will be just like old days ... me and my car back together ... but once the rush of being reunited with my precious baby wears off ... then it's merely a countdown to the day i sell it ... which i'm guessing will occur within the year ... and then i buy a brand new one ... i've already started thinking of what i might get ... the new hyundais are pretty slick ... maybe it's time to go japanese ... we will see ...

And who in their right mind would actually buy your carla?? I think it's dangerous for you to drive it and I don't believe in this changing the whole engine thing...just toss it and get yourself a brand new one :p

Japanese is good I like their attention to details.
