The best laid plans of mice and men....

I was on my way to work this morning, right near the freeway on-ramp, when I heard BOOM. Then rattlerattlerattle.

Yep, I blew out a tire. So I had to cancel my AM class and call AAA to come put on the donut for me. And, since the donut can't handle freeway speed, I had to get it taken care of right away. As we speak, I am waiting for 4 brand-spanking-new tires (it was high time to change them, anyway) and then I'll be on my not-so-merry way to work, I suppose.


UPDATE: 4 tires = $781. And I made it to work well in time for my 12 pm meeting.

gotta love those space saver tires ... not. I had one for years, had to use it a few times, it was a nice bright orange colour too!

ouch on the $781
