So anyway, I drove off without cleaning the windshield, figuring I'd pull in at a gas station and use the free squeegee they have there to clean off the windshield.
But first I wanted to buy a copy of Janis Joplin's "Cheap Thrills" album (the one with the comic-art cover drawn by Robert Crumb). My main reason for buying this album was to compare the cover art to today's "Mutts" comic strip, which parodies it.
After I got the album, I suddenly remembered something else I've been wanting to shop for: car cleaning supplies! I looked first at Kroger's, but they didn't really have anything for cars. So I went to Target, and bought a bottle of car cleaning fluid and a big bone-shaped sponge. Never mind the gas station! I figured I'd clean my car myself when I got home.
Except that I'm home now, and it's raining heavily! Hmm, maybe it will clean the egg off my car. I'm glad I didn't park under the tree this time.
