A couple of weeks ago, Juanito called me and said, "So i was just driving down the road, and all of a sudden the car started whining really loudly, and then it threw something out of the engine, and...the alternator is broken." Those aren't his exact words, but it was "Something, something, something, car broken, blah blah blah." And so, for the past weeks, we've been using one car, which only works because i'm sleeping when Juanito is at work and he's sleeping when i'm at work.
But tomorrow we will actually need both cars, and so tonight Juanito gritted his teeth and tucked his hair up into a plastic bag (because...dreads) and got down to the actual work of fixing the alternator. So now we have two cars again! Yay!
