The first flat tire of 2011

Ah yes, we got a flat tire over the weekend. I hate it. What an inconvenience. I was out with Lily, having dropped off Josh to a birthday party at one of those bounce places. We had a tight schedule today, so I was trying to get as much as I could done. After hitting Kohl’s, I pulled out of the parking lot, and couldn’t ignore a low-level roar.

I pulled over near the next shop we had to get to (BJ’s Wholesale), and saw the rear right tire was flat. Argh. I called AAA, and they would have someone here soon. I took Lily in to get some grocery shopping done. I had until 12 noon before we had to pick up Josh from the party. I thought I would have time to still get him.


By the time we were done, I got a txt msg status that they would be further delayed. Double argh! I walked Lily to a nearby Chick-fil-A, to eat lunch and play, and I spoke to my wife, and she ultimately went to get Josh instead. An inconvenience to many. AAA’s tow company came just before noon, and we were back on the road soon enough. Still, it ate up too much time out of a busy day.


Now, we need to figure out how to add the cost of a new tire to the rest of the Toyota repairs we need to get done in the next few months.
