what I learned from washing the car

  1. Twenty-five-foot hoses are generally not long enough. Besides, 50-foot hoses only cost $2 more.
  2. When you connect the hose to the faucet, turn on the water, and find pressurized water spraying from everywhere around the connection point, do not immediately look for your warranty card. Simply look around for the plastic washer that might have come out of the hose's connection point with the faucet. Replace the washer and turn on the water. The results should be agreeable.
  3. End-of-season wasps and bees find wet cars in 1:00-p.m. sun fascinating.
  4. Clean cars sure look nice!

My personal favorite, is the long lack of precipitaion, followed by my annual car wash, then an immediate shift in weather patterns resulting in no less than several feet of snow... Watch out, I need to wash my car this week :)
