It Sounds Like Hallelujah (That Time I Freaked Out But Everything Was Okay} - SelfBinding Retrospect

I left the car parked where they set out a parade of ice sculptures for a winter festival we hadn't known about until it was over.

I left it there like a monument to my pain and suffering, thinking that my license plate was a tomb stone, marking it's final resting spot.

What makes a car run anyway? Is it gas? Willpower? Prayer?

Hours later, when Scott went to check it - to decide on a tow truck and a course of action - it ran perfectly. And I am the 10 km/hr idiot who spent an entire day in a panic.

Maybe I imagined the whole thing.

We took it to the mechanic just outside of town to make sure everything was okay. Because I Did Not Imagine The Whole Thing! I'm 99% sure!

We waited all day today to hear the verdict. And it came just before five o'clock.

It was a computer misfire.


Can I get an Amen?

Can I get a High-Five-Some-Angels-Dance in the kitchen?

Because $60 sounds like hallelujah!

This is what I've learned:
Someday my VW Bug will be more than a toy on a shelf - SelfBinding Retrospect

So for now I am calm and I am grateful and I'm pretty sure somebody out there said some kind of prayer.  Miracles don't happen on their own!

{Because I believe in giving credit where credit is due, 'Sounds Like Hallelujah' by The Head and the Heart is one of my most favorite songs and I listened to a stripped down version on repeat while I wrote this post, hence the highly appropriate but slightly stolen borrowed title.

  1. Don't know if you remember Auntie Ree's VW bug (which was red!), but I do! Kev inherited it when she bought a new one... wonder if it still runs? He'd be the guy to ask if it can be resurrected!

    Oh, and a total High-Five Angel's dance with an Amen, Hallelujah!

    1. I remember hearing stories about that car but never saw it - at least that I remember. It would be amazing if it was still around and functional!

  2. God is awesome! and cars are stupid!
