Minty Squirrel's Revenge

I have finally figured out what is wrong with my car! (It had problems with starting after work again...)

The problem is it just won't start from 3:30 - 6:30 pm.

That's all.

What the hell is that about? I drove to work yesterday so I could go have dinner at my friend Jeannie's house. After work, which just happens to be at 4:00 pm, the damn thing just wouldn't start.

Jeannie came and rescued me - which seems to be a recurring theme in my life right now - we had dinner, and at started with no problems.

Is it because it sits in the heat all day and that does something to some wiring because of expansion of something-or-other?

Or maybe it's a Mexican car and just needs the afternoon siesta.

I understand.

I'm fine with that.

Don't know if it's even similar, but I recently had a problem with my spark plug wires not connecting right after they were hot. They kept coming open and causing problems. Since I got them fixed, no missing on the highway, no problems in the morning. It's a beautiful thing, but it cost me $250.

Well I'll give you some advice because I'm Car-Sav-Ani. Kick it. Swear if your daughters aren't around. And then talk nicely. And ask a cute boy for help.

We-ell, it's a squirrel right? And squirrels like to hoard things... So maybe it's just hoarding, um, some fluid or something... And once it's hoarded enough, it'll nibble on a nut or two, then run off into the trees laughing with the pixies and the elves...

Now if you'll excuse me, I think it's time for my medicine...

Simply don't go anywhere during those times Stay home if you must, and tell the folks at work to stick it, because you've got to work on your carma. carma. Get it? Heheheheh.

Did you check to see if it's plugged in?

Then I'm fresh out of ideas.

Do you park in a garage or out in the open? That over-heating thing may not be far off. You know, considering the heat wave you have been experiencing lately.
