Pop goes the wheel

A good day for a flat tire.

Drove to our weekly breakfast. Saw a poet-friend turned hermit at the cash register, sat and talked. As we all left he said “This is going to be a good day.”

Two blocks later we pull over because things don’t sound right. Our rear tire is flat. Lady mentions she heard a *pop* when we parked at the restaurant.

The spare tire is also flat because of a bad air stem. Flat tire, flat spare, I put money in the parking meter.

Lady says she saw a tire store a block back, so I check the broken trunk to see if our jack’s still there, remove the tire, carry it over. They find the air stem blown out at its base (Lady’s *pop*).

They plop in a new stem, say “No charge” and send us on our way.

From flat to fixed, less than 30 minutes. Cost zero, value infinite.

I am grateful for these acts of kindness.
