OMG. What a day. I swear, anything that could have possibly went wrong on my trip up to OHSU today went wrong. And yet, it all worked out in the end.
$353 later, we had a good-as-new car. And I was an hour late to see Dr. Swiss Tybor. And I had to get a ride to see said doctor from the car rental guy.
But it all paid off because I got to go to Old Wives' Tales and gain 50 pounds in severely yummy food.
In my haze of frustration yesterday I forgot to mention my encounter with the mormons. It was ridiculous. I was on my way to class when I passed about 6 well dressed young men on the street. I smiled politely as I thought to myself "Either Mormons or young business men. No, Mormons." Just as I get past who I determined to be the leader of the gaggle, he notices my "Who would Jesus bomb" patch on my messenger bag. He pauses and asks me, "Excuse me miss, do you have any experience with the Church of Latter Day Saints?" and I turned around slowly and thought about all my friends who were mormons and replied, "yes, I have some friends who belong to the Church." The other members of his gaggle had stopped by this time as well, and he then asks me, "would you like to join?" I politely declined, saying that I already belonged to a church (half true) and thanked him anyway. Just as I was about to turn and walk away, he perks up again. "Well, if you change your mind, here is a picture of Jesus Christ our savior. On the other side is an offer for a free video about salvation." Well, thank you Mr. Mormon and have a swell day.
