Several years ago, while living in Central Texas, we had an afternoon ice storm. I was at work with no water pitcher to use and who in that area owns an ice scraper? Thinking ahead I went to the car to turn on the defrost and get 'er warming (if you live in Texas you'll eventually use the phrase, it's beyond your control.) So car on? check. Defrost on high? check. Okay I'll go wait inside until it's ready. Lock the door...lock the door? Shoot the keys are in it! (Not unheard of for me.) So I'll call my husband... wait he's in exams... AAAAGGGHH!
I thank him profusely and then he hands me the wire (apparently it was a good idea to talk to a stoned stranger.) Where did he find this ideal wire? ... it was the CB antenna from our car. Thank you. Thank you very much. (Yellow is in lieu of sarcastic font.) But I have to say it's made a funny story that I love to relay.
