Will We Survive!?

The MedStud has TWO tests this week, one today and one on Friday!  Ahh!  After this however, he will be done with Microbiology.  And he is so happy.

The week started off pretty bad.  He drives a scooter to school because we only live 7 miles away (even though we have 2 cars) and the scooter completely broke down on Monday.  Uh-oh.  He was freaking out because he now prefers to study at the school and without his precious scooter, how would he get to school?  My suggestion: drive the car (duh).  We have money, it's not like we're destitute, and we're able to afford parking for a couple days.  Then, get the scooter an appointment at the dealership, and get it fixed!  Brilliant, huh?

He didn't think so.

"Well, the parking lot is such a long walk from the school, and I have to leave for home when it's dark...Plus the parking is $4 per day!!  PLUS, the dealership is always super overpriced and I can maybe fix it myself!"  (Can you feel the sarcasm oozing out of my writing?)  So, he ended up trying to drive the scooter that can now only drive 20 MPH to school and it stopped working on the way home.  He spent so much time trying to figure out what was wrong, and we even tipped the scooter over to pour the gasoline into a vase (much to my chagrin, as the gas was spilling all over the grass) to see if the type of gas he had put in was the problem.  Finally, he purchased a brand new battery for it and it worked.

Hallelujah.  My husband turned into a crazy person the few days his scooter was broken and I didn't like it.  I'm sure this is what he thinks of me when I'm on my period... "What a crazy lady!"
