On September 1, the day my book was officially released, I could be found cooling my heels at a dealership, waiting for my car to be repaired. The stereo had decided to stop working after it had eaten my “Best of Frankie Yankovic” cd.
I suspect this was God’s way to keep me humble. “So you think you’re a big shot author, eh? Well, now your mechanic knows you listen to polkas. Not such a big shot now, are you?”
It took a couple of hours, but Mr. Mechanic fixed the cd player and sent me on my merry way.
And then the radio stopped working. So this week I was waiting around the car dealership once again.
I get it, God. I’m humble now. Really!
As some of you may know, when I’m forced to humbly sit in a waiting room, I like to doodle for your enjoyment. So here you are! A doodle for you!
Unlike my other doodles, this one indicates what I’m going to write about in my next post. Wanna take a guess?
If not, feel free to tell me a car repair story!
Or feel free to tell me about the most embarrassing cd in your record collection!
Or tell me whatever you like. I enjoy hearing from you!
