Saturday, January 16th, 2010

7:00 am - wake up, realize that you've only been asleep for six hours and for heaven's sake it's Saturday, go back to sleep.

10:00 - 11:00 am - wake up again, curse yourself for not setting an alarm, take shower, get dressed.

11:15 - 11:45 am - pick up some donuts for breakfast, arrive at mechanic, ask how long an oil change and safety and emissions test will take, thank goodness they say only an hour and a half because you've got places to be, hand over key, walk over to Tanner Building.

12:00 - 1:30 pm - eat donuts, study, study, study, discuss deep findings in education, study some more, wonder why the mechanic hasn't called yet.

1:45 - 3:00 pm - walk back to mechanic, see car in the process of its oil change, believe it's almost done, sit down in mechanic lobby, study some more, read some magazines, start to get antsy about the prospects of the car getting done any time soon, see mechanic drive car over to parking spot, pray that car is almost done because you were planning on being in Park City by now, see woman pull up in her own car, walk over to your car, knock on your car's window, then see mechanic get out of your car and go help entitled woman for 20 more minutes, ask mechanic manager if your car is almost done, see manager tell other mechanic that the owner of the 4runner is here and can see everything you're doing, watch mechanic say a swear, get a discount from the manager for your patience, plus a lame excuse about how social mechanic is, finally get car back.

3:15 - 4:15 pm - go home, pack, leave for Park City, complain about lack of professionalism from mechanic, give thanks for discount, resolve to still go to that mechanic because they are so convenient and actually do good work, albeit slow, but not ever again when you're in a hurry.

Sounds like a really lame day...except that you went to Park City (which is one of my favorite places in the world) and didn't tell us how great it was! (I'm making an assumption here)
