Mechanics

I have to take my car in to be serviced today. My air conditioner has died, my tires need to be serviced, and my oil needs to be changed. I hate going to a mechanic. Everyone I’ve ever dealt with when servicing my car always tried to get me to spend more money than necessary, and sadly, I don’t know enough about cars to know the difference. Luckily, I have found a garage up here that is well trusted. It’s actually owned by a woman, and from all accounts, she never tries to cheat her customers. She did great work last time I took my car to her, so I’m hoping the same will be true this time. It’s nice that this place is giving me a loaner car for the day.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
