Day Fifty-Six - Stinko

While driving home from a wake, minding my own business, my little car gave a little "POP"...and stopped running! Stranded. Nothing.

Thank the Universe for AAA! They promptly sent a flatbed truck which hauled my car the 11 miles to my mechanic. The verdict? A timing belt. Oh, you gasp in horror! NOT the timing belt! That will cost a FORTUNE! And you are right in your assessment of this.

The only thing that makes this even more infuriating...I replaced this timing belt LESS THAN 8000 MILES AGO! Something is stinko with this scenario. The mechanic and I will have a chat tomorrow...
