I went home to Houston for a bit. I had many things to take care of. I replaced all four tires, because they were clearly unbalanced and skinny. I bought them at discount tires, because if you are loyal to them, they’ll do a lot of maintenance for free. All four tires plus warranty cost a total of $435. I also had to pay some court fees for an old ticket and get on a defensive driving class. I bathed the cats and gave them their flea prevention so that mom doesn’t have to do it when I leave town again. I vacuumed the hell out of the house, got an oil change, and some other stuff.
My mother said she was going to buy some hair color so she could dye her grays. I told her she didn’t have to, because there is a box under the bathroom sink. I got it a while back on clearance for only $3.50. She went under the sink and picked out another box that I had forgotten about- bleach that we had meant to use on Evita when she wanted a funky color like blue or green. We just never got around to it.
I caught it just in time. I told her that wasn’t the one, and found the brown dye that I got on clearance. It’s a good thing I was around, or she would have ended up ready for Halloween with orange hair.
