Hissing Like A Cornered, Wounded Cat That Also Happens To Spit Anti-Freeze

This is a reasonably accurate visual rendering of the replacement radiator hose that was just installed on my vehicle. As an aside, it's always nice to turn a quick lunch break during a Sunday in the office into a three-hour tour (a three hour tour) of Auto Zone and your sister-in-law's driveway. Actually, the sister-in-law's driveway was a good thing, as her boyfriend and their neighbor were the guys who helped me replace the hose. Or, rather, I stood by and helped a very little bit, while they did the lion's share of the work.


Radiator hose........................................................................................ $13
Thermostat.............................................................................................. $7
18-pack of Bud Light as payment to the guys who helped you.... $12
Driving safely back to work without your vehicle's engine overheating...

Well, you know the rest.

Oh, make that, driving safely back to work on a Sunday without your vehicle's engine overheating...

Wait, make that driving safely back to work on a Sunday without your vehicle's engine overheating, so you can post about the experience only to be interrupted by a phone call from your wife stating that the basement now smells so strongly of mold that it's wafting upstairs to assault their nostrils...FUCKING PRICELESS!!!

I hope you have a second 18-pack of Bud to get you through your evening.

One more thing: You really need to blow the he** out of town for a long, relaxing weekend sometime soon. Very soon.

As long as the smell doesn't blow with him, I agree, he should do that. Are you listening?
