How does a 1971 Vega break down on the left hand lane of the 405? Forget about the fact I could get wiped out by some stiff fish in his BMW going 85 per, but the god damn LA summer is in full tilt and I nearly got cooked before I reached the nearest filling station. AAA would have been a good idea but the name of that operation stirs my drink a little stiff, if you will pardon the expression diary. So I had to shell out a bill so a "professional" could get my car off the road and onto the rack. I am waiting for his call now and I am sure it will be humourous...it always is. Luckily, Manolo was around and picked me up otherwise I'd still be there drinking their sh*t coffee and watching tire promos. Hopefully my date tonight will go more smoothly.
