It won't stay hard

I'm in need of a new set of tires for my car.

Now that I have the car loan finally paid off, I'm going to start saving to buy them.  In the meantime, I have to make what's left of the tires last as long as possible.  A new set of four is about $700.

The passenger side rear tire goes flat every 24 hours.  Fortunately, I have a little portable air compressor that runs off of power from a lighter socket in the car.  I air it up every morning before heading off to work.

I had a good laugh on Friday morning when I sent Anthony the following text while I was waiting for the tire to inflate:

"My poor little tire was completely flat!  I'm blowing it up now and its making me lightheaded!"

There's always a way to make life's tragic moments funny.

The little compressor that airs up my tire each day.
It performs an impressive blow job.
