My goodness. At this point, we wish for Mrs. Smith’s sake that the story might begin to improve, but alas, it is not so. The adventures continue!
Saturday August 28 / overcast skies, falling temperatures
Heading to Skokie to cheer on a friend walking in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day, Mrs. Smith manages to hit, head-on and at appropriate tollway speed, The World’s Largest Pothole.
Mrs. Smith: “Is that my tire?”
Major Day Saver #1: Good Samaritan Saviors / Truckers who stop to change flat tires for Hapless Females (Mrs. Smith would be wise to keep forking out that AAA membership fee just in case)
Major Day Saver #2: Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day walkers and volunteers. It’s an awesome thing.
Major Day Saver #3: the Tierra Grill in Elmhurst (correction: Villa Park), proving once again that where there are tacos, there is joy
Footnote: It’s going to take a little advance remuneration to get Trixie anywhere near the northern territories with Mrs. Smith any time soon.
