My mom's 10-year-old Honda Odyssey gave up the ghost today. Ironically, it was on the way back from dropping off my dad at a garage for *his* car. There was no oil in the Honda, they pressed on anyway, and presumably the engine seized.
They didn't know it was dead when they called me at 7:45 this morning to come pick them up. The car had stopped right in the middle of a back road with no shoulder. My mom got a ride to work from a passing coworker, so when I got there, my dad and I waited for about 5 minutes until the tow truck arrived--the tow truck from the garage they just left. Oh, also it was the coldest day of the year and there was snow on everything.
So now that we're down a car, I'm going to have to use my own car to pick my little brother up from his new school
three times a week. This will probably imminentize its destruction (my car, not the school).
On the plus side...
Phoenix Wright 2 is pretty good.
