Countdown Chores

I’ve been working on an essay on homelessness, but it is on hold today while I do Father/Guy stuff. Rat Jr. is about a week away from moving to Idaho, but the impending departure is in peril due to an episode of bad judgment. She loaned her car to a friend who promptly got hit by another car on the ice a couple of days ago. It is temporarily drivable, but the front end is bent perilously close to the front wheel. So I get to do Guy stuff because I’m the Dad.

Having me do body work on a vehicle is sort of like putting Hillary Clinton in charge of the lobbying efforts for the NRA. Nothing good can come of it.

(Actually, that isn’t a very good analogy. I don’t actually hate Rat Jr.’s car. It’s just the best I could come up with this morning.)
