Scooby Scooby Do!
Tonight we stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things, but when we returned to our car, we couldn't start it. We had been noticing some problems, but hadn't taken the car in to get fixed yet. The steering wheel was locked up and we couldn't turn the key. We sat for a few minutes trying to decide what to do about the problem. We were both so tired, it was hard to even think, but we thought about our different options. At one point I decided to see if maybe I had the magic touch, and got out of the passenger side of the car to go try starting the car. As I was thinking about how to solve the problem, I walked around the back of the car and saw a bumper sticker that said, "What would Scooby do?"
I couldn't start the car. We tried some lock lubricant, but that didn't work either. We finally decided to call a tow truck. The guy charged us to come and bang on the steering column with his wrench. The car started right up. I think he jiggled the tumblers in to place when he hit it.
Meanwhile, while I had been waiting, I had found a Christmas stocking with candy. I ate a whole mess of chocolate. I guess I did do what Scooby would do, I found a scooby snack.
