Goin’ Commando

Yesterday, my cute little Ninja’s taaaaar light was on when I went to work. Text message to you-might-know-who: Tire light on. He came home and fixed it. Or so I thought. This morning, the taaaaar light was still on when I faaaaared up the Ninja. That was okay. Usually after the taaarr(s) get pumped up, the next time I faaaar up the Ninja, the light will still be on for a block or a half-mile or so, then it goes out. Whew! Today it stayed on all the way to work. Turns out *both* back taaaaars were a wee teensy tinesy bit low, now just one of them. We’ll see. I love this vee-hickle but the taaaars drive me nuts. They are not good in snow and they are so blasted finicky. Taaaaar lights are a good thing overall. I want to know if my tires (okay, taaaaared of typing taaaaars the Texas way (and so are you)). As much as I love the Ninja, if I didn’t have a decent auto mechanic around here, I would trade that thing for a top-dolla Honda Accord in a heartbeat because putting air in tires every month or so is definitely not on my bucket list. Not that I have a bucket list. Chore list, maybe?

The GG is a pretty dern good auto mechanic although we mostly take our vee-hickles in for service at the dealer these days. He worked at a gas station back in high school. He pumped gas and stuff and when it was quiet, he was allowed to do his homework. And he was held up at gunpoint. Twice? I can’t remember. He put himself through college (computer science) by working summers at the Hamtramck Assembly plant.

Goin’ Commando? Oh, no. Not in general. Designer underwear? No, not me. Cotton or cotton blend. TMI.

Should I go up to the Great White North this weekend? I want to. I want to hike with our North Country Trail friends. But I don’t have any more vacay and that makes it a really short, busy weekend. I am leaning toward going north. Convince me that I should go north.

    Indulge yourself: go north. It’ll get cobwebs out of the corners of yer brain (I think).

    Cotton undies for me too. Jockey for women, hipsters, size 5. They are very comfy. I always forget–but what is the Ninja again? I don’t have a vehicle that has anything fancy on it(2002 Chevy Trailblazer) and that’s just fine with me. More to go wrong.

    Go North! Work 4 10’s instead of 5 8’s, or let the GG drive and telecommute from the vehicle, telecommute in the evening or early morning, but GO!
