Today I:

– used a lot of tissues
– went to a UPS store and bought the biggest box known to man
– managed to fit the biggest box in the world into the back of the car in only 5 minutes
– got a flat tire
– called my dad, who met me in a parking lot and talked me through what to do
– got greasy and dirty and changed my first flat tire
– did a happy little “proud-of-myself” jig that made me cough more
– went home and collapsed into a new pile of tissues

P.S. While only half-watching the olympics this evening, I’m pretty sure I overheard the figure skating commentator say “the ladies twizzle section”. I have no idea if that was what he really said, and what exactly that would mean concerning figure skating, but it made me giggle.
