THAT ONE TIME I HAD TO RESCUE THE JOSH MORRIS

Thanks to a snow day this Monday, Tuesday was my Monday.
And what a Monday it was.
In fact, what a Wednesday it was.
Anyways.
Both days called for 3 Oreos and some p&q.
{That’s peace & quiet.}
If you’ve ever been with kiddos for more than 2 hours, you’ll understand.
But for this story let’s back up to Tuesday.
Err – yesterday.
I hear the buzz buzz of my phone vibrating on the shelf in our classroom around 3 o’clock.
“Husband’ appears.
Why the heck is Josh calling me?
He knows I’m at work.
{Little twinge of worry strikes….now.}
Maybe he just thinks I’m on lunch.
Right, right.
No…
Text message:
“Umm….are you ok?”
Frantic reply:
“I got a flat and I’m stranded on Campbell and I don’t have the thing to change it.”
It probably doesn’t help that the majority of our friends are out of town on spring break.
I mean, I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the first one he called.
They don’t call me “Fix-A-Flat-Rach”.
But since my assistant teacher was already there for the day, I asked my director and her reply was, “You must go save him. You must!”
So rush out the door I did.
I pulled up next to my poor little husband and proceeded to pop my trunk – ya know, where they keep the tire changing “things”.
I hauled out an obscene amount of junk from my trunk and piled them up in the parking lot.
We unloaded all the stuff only to find out that my “bolt looseners” {Seriously – what are those things called?} did not fit his wheels.
Bummer.
We {he} jacked it up then made a trip to the auto shop for a bolt loosener that was guaranteed to fit all bolts.
Progress.
One hour later and we were on the road again!
To the auto shop.
To get the tire replaced.
I-yi-yi.
Three hours later we were devouring mac & cheese like ravenous beasts.
It was an exciting Tuesday, that’s for sure.
And the hot-button, “don’t ask me I don’t know” question of the day:
What happened to your tire changing tools?
Well that’ll about make a grown man cry.

  1. Wow, I'm glad you got everything fixed! It sounds like quite the experience!

    p.s. And as a fellow teacher, I so understand the whole three Oreos and some peace a quiet. That sounds just about right to me!
