I want to talk like Raymond Carver

[personal profile] rushthatspeaks and I just successfully jumpstarted [personal profile] teenybuffalo's car, which had died on the street outside their house. We had jumper cables, two sets of instructions, and no previous experience. Both of us expected the car would growl a bit, we'd check to make sure we hadn't clipped the cables on wrong, eventually we'd call a garage.

It totally worked. Teeny Buffalo has just driven away. (To find a garage, but still.)

I feel a ridiculous sense of accomplishment.

Seriously, you saved me a lot of money and my composure today. The car is safely at the garage for the night, and tomorrow I hope to find out what was wrong. In the meantime, laundry and sleep. All my gratitude.

It is magic! Sharing the life-force between two mechanical objects.

I theoretically _could_ but I'm not sure I'd ever bother, so well done you all!

In these troubled times, even when doing the right thing is obvious, it is worthy of celebration.
