Why oh why?

Why is it that this week, the week when the rains won’t stop and we all start to think about building arks, is the week when the fan belt decides to break on my car?

Leaving me stuck in the pouring rain. In the middle of nowhere. (Well, not quite nowhere, but near UWI – not at home, at my parent’s, at the man’s, at work, you know somewhere easy).

Leaving me without a car when everyone else in Kingston is trying to get taxis due to the rain so they have become a rare commodity.

And of course, it turns out that my car, despite being fairly common on the road, has a fan belt that is ‘tall’ and hence hard to find and hence a 1 hour job has turned into 2 carless days and still counting.

Please let it get fixed today. Please let the rains stop. I want to enjoy my heroes weekend!
