I woke up this morning and the sun was shining. The rumor from the National Weather Service was that it was going to go up to 55F. By the time I finally rolled about and got ready to exit the house it was 10:15, there were already long lines at the car wash. I am talking about twenty cars in line.
Now Emily, bless her heart, said that I am the most impatient person she knows. I have to admit that this morning I was, I could not spend one hour in that line. There is another car was and this was one you wash yourself and it also have a no touch washer, how does that work?
I suspect it had some type of high pressure water washer. There were about ten people in that line…I wonder if you could use that to wash your mini blinds? Just a thought there……
I came home and decided to wash it myself. Chuck was home so he decided to have an auto wash-a-thon. The first problem was the hose was frozen, I suggested to him to get the one from the back of the house that the sun had been shining on it for a few hours, EUREKA it was thawed……
Each time we wash cars he gives me a critique and tutorial on what I am doing wrong. This must be some innate knowledge on the Y Chromosome. No matter what I do, it is not right.
How many ways are there to was the car? Step one, wet it down. Step two, wash it top to bottom with a soap and water solution. Step three, rinse off soap water with clean water. Step four, dry the freaking car with a clean cloth. I did those steps but I WAS DOING IT WRONG. I did not was it horizontally, washing it in a circular motion, ala Mr. Miyagi, was not right….I was tempted to squirt the antagonist with the hose but decided not to at that point in time. I would have if the weather had been 30 degrees warmer. I do have some scruples.
We did wash three cars and saved about $30 dollars, next time I hope the line is not long, or I will wash it a day when he is at work.
It was a great feeling to get two months grit and grime off the car.
