yeah, for me!

I changed my second ever tire! (Yes, succesfully) Jason ran over a screw and...
I say Jason, because I don't really drive- I get bad road rage and Jason likes to drive so it seems to be the natural solution. When we are together HE drives.

That leaves some nice reading and nap time for me on long trips and saves him from an increasingly obnoxious travel companion. A time honored travel solution for the Perkins is to stay up as late as you can the night before and then sleep for as much as the trip as you can manage, of course this tatic was easier to so when we were to young to drive, but...

The tactic has not aged well, that's for sure. Sometimes Mary Ann has to be careful to keep me awake on longer trips...

why didn't jason change the tire?

Terra said...

Jason didn't change the tire because he was at work, and didn't want too. When I first mentioned that I coudl change it he told me "you are not changing that tire" in a manner that made it clear it was some kind of chivelery thing. But when you only have one boy in the family chivelry kind of dies in cases like this.

is chivelery or chivelry anything like chivalry?

Way to go Terra! I'm glad Jason at least made a gesture toward changing the tire, especially if he was responsible for "flatting" it.
I should just e-mail you but I didn't have your most current address, would you PLEASE post some pictures of Adrian on the family.com site? I feel terrible that nothing has been posted. Thanks,
Mom
P.S. I'm sure Kat's remark rankled but please try to understand how irritating misspelled words are to those who can spell...It is almost a compulsion to correct them, like straightening a crooked picture, you can't take your eyes off of it, but you don't enjoy it either.

Bonnie my wife shares that obsession with you and Kat. I however cring when I see a picture framed wrong or a particularly bad design with colors that don't go together, or fonts that clash, or paragraphs that are not formated ect.

Jonas said...

Oh yeah I forgot. Yay for Terra, go girl power!

Josh said...

i think you mean cringe.

Bonnie said...

and etc. I wonder, are there basically only two kinds of people in the world, those who can't spell and those who can't resist correcting their spelling!

katperkins said...

Mom, I really hope you're not trying to act like you don't correct people's spelling and grammar. If you are I just have to say one thing. Ridonkulous. Acutally I have something else to say, "and etc." is redundant. The "et" in "et cetera" means and in Latin.

Bonnie said...

Nope, I am definitely in the "spelling fixer" camp. I have been known to correct posters when I think no one is watching. And BTW, I was correcting Dave's "ect" just for the fun of it.

katperkins said...

Good. Then I would like to formally retract my "ridonkulous."
