A Whole New World.
So, it's raining today. But, guess what? (1) I don't have to go to work, & (2) I have a garage!
...and remember when I said, "clearly I'm expecting this garage to change my life..." Yeah, I was right. So far, using the garage makes me shake, sweat, & almost sh*t my pants. It's a ton of fun. I highly suggest everyone take a turn at parking your brand new freakin' dream car in this shoe box of a space.
Now, I'm told that when you have a garage w/ 2 entrances (one entrance per car), that this door is standard size for that type of set up.
Well, fuck me.
I get to make about a 26 point turn just to make sure that I am perfectly aligned with the opening. Here comes the shaking...and I'm already sweating.
As I inch forward, I'm convinced that I am going to slowly scrape the sides of Car #2 along the door frame. I have to give a little gas to get over the cement lip, and of course, I'm not THAT used to driving Car #2, so I almost shit myself when I ALMOST run into the wall that marks the end of the garage/beginning of the house. Yeah, I'm sure our Home Owner's Insurance doesn't cover stupidity.
"Maam---you're too stupid to own this car. We're repossessing it b/c you're a dumbass."
"But----I made the payments on time!"
"That's not why we're here. You clearly can't park the S.O.B., so we're removing it from your possession."
Okay....that above conversation didn't really happen...but I can feel it coming.
Oh yeah...this whole garage thing is going to change my life.... In fact, yesterday it kept my ass home. Why? because the car was in the garage, and there was no place that I wanted to go bad enough to get it out of the garage. I'm sure that pulling it out will be easier that pulling it in....but still. We stayed home.
Oh, I just couldn't waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait to have a garage....
