A couple of months ago, two days after my birthday, I came out of University early and got on my car. I decided to eat lunch at a fast food so off I went. While driving towards McDonald's my mind was far away in better places. I was fantasizing about what I would do with the money I got for my birthday. My two top choices were a new ipod or a better skimboard. I tend to over-think things, so I thought that the money would sit in my wallet for a long time until I finally decided for one thing over the other. Fortunately for the economy and unfortunately for me, life had other plans. Since I wasn't paying too much attention to the road my car started going out of the lane and towards a roadside ditch. I heard a loud BAM! My car jumped, the wipers went on and my mind came back from where it was. I ended up in the parking of a Taco Bell changing a flat tire. No more decision making, my birthday present for myself ended up being a new tire. When I finished changing the tire and got back in my car the first thing I saw was a pickup truck with dozens of tires in the back. Life just likes to laugh at me sometimes.
