Recently I took my car in for its regular servicing, and must unusually I didn’t receive that dreaded call alerting you to 501 things they insist need doing that will cost you a mortgage to have fixed; that has never happened to me before. They did, however, alert me to the fact there was a crack in the top right of my screen behind servicing stickers (there was a few) that I really must attend to quickly. How little did I appreciate how quickly that crack was going to develop, what then started out as this small spiders web ended up two weeks later a massive 15cm crack that went edge to edge.
Ironically, I kept forgetting to call my insurer to arrange the screen’s replacement, it was only after I’d been rear ended 8 days ago in a car park whilst i too was reversing that I actually needed to call my insurer. The lights went off as i was talking to them, two birds killed with one stone. With my screen replacement booked in for today and my car repair for the 17th, I was now all set, then on Sunday our state was unexpectedly hit by a COVID-19 case. I now wasn’t sure if today might go ahead, thankfully O’Briens texted me to say I would, so long as I wasn’t one of those affected – thankfully I wasn’t.
The last time I’d worn a mask was when I visited the Apple Store in Perth to pick up my Home Pod Mini; I could barely breathe as my nose is perpetually blocked. I didn’t think at the time to snap a selfie and see what I might look at, well today I didn’t miss that opportunity. Sitting in the O’Briens waiting lounge I figured why not. I still had my Oakley glasses on at the time, what a sight haha, I looked like a scifi version of a cartoon bird with a big white beak #bukerk
In these times whilst enduring a lockdown, even if brief, it’s good to be able to laugh at one’s self.
