I was lollygagging around the shop and heard one of the guys mutter, ‘cock-sucker’. I starting laughing and swore that I was totally going to put that word back into my daily vocabulary.
He kept coming up to me during the day to ask if I had used my word yet and I said, ‘nope…I will though.’
At the end of the day all four guys had their head shoved in the hood of this old car trying to figure out what was wrong with it. I pushed my way in and looked at the engine and then around at the guys and said, “So what’s wrong with this cock sucker?”
They lost it! I totally got a high five for that one.
On Wednesday I learned what a serpentine belt is and what they look like right before they come off and destroy a bunch of stuff. Thursday I learned what a freeze plug was. Who knows what I will learn today. I’m hoping that I will be taught how to change the oil in my car soon. It just gets too busy and I get about 4 minutes into a lesson and then I am pulled away with something that is so important that my boss FINALLY remembers my name (he calls me, ‘what’s her name’ or ‘the girl’) and yells it across the shop.
Today I am bringing in tri-tip and potato salad. It’s going to be a pain the arse trying to make it there, but it’s so good when it’s fresh. Friday Pot Luck will start off with a bang! :)
Soooo, it’s Friday. That means tomorrow is Saturday and I get to take my trip I planned last month. A WHOLE MONTH AGO! That is SO unlike me! When I am going through something, my ‘do it now!’ gene kicks in, but this time I planned it out and I am SO happy I did. It gave me something to look forward to. It’s only one day and night, but that’s perfect. I’m so ready to get in the car and go for a road trip and laugh. and laugh. and laugh.
Next weekend is OkaCup and I said I was going to go, but as it nears I have added a bunch of other things I want to do. Victoria and I are going on a trail run early in the morning. It’s going to day 5 on my program and like week 7 on hers. She cheated though. Maybe I will a little too. I hate the 2 on 4 off…I want to keep going!!!
THEN DISNEYLAND! Kara is flying into LAX and we are going to pick her up there. She’s convinced she will see a celebrity.
My life is right about to spin off and I am scared shitless about a few things, but hopeful about a few more.
I do know this…I am happy, hopeful and ready to begin again.
