I had a flat tire two days ago. It stressed me out a bit but it was actually the easiest flat tire ever.
I pulled into the parking lot at work (was already right there), parked the car, checked the tire. Yep, completely busted. Called my husband and went in to work.
He took care of it completely, and when the work day was over I went out to the parking lot and drove home.
I was so happy not to have to deal with a flat tire myself. If that makes me a wimpy girly-girl who's setting back feminism with my dependence upon my husband... Well, so be it. Because I was very, very happy that I have a husband who could rescue me from my flat tire situation.
The boys were in HEAVEN over the flat tire. They danced with joy when Beloved took out the jack from the back of the car. The whole time he was working on it they pretended to be the pit crew of a racing team (from a safe distance). They inspected the flat tire and gave Beloved helpful hints while he worked (like, "Dad, you should get one of those 'zip, zip' things to take off the bolts."). That evening they were disappointed that we wouldn't let them draw racing numbers directly on the side of the car, but compromised by drawing colorful numbers on paper and taping them to the doors and roof of the car.
They were pretty cute. And my husband, clearly, is the manliest of manly men.
