I love my little car. It’s been good to me and I try to be good to it. Lately, though, things haven’t been quite right. I think it started a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was me but I’ve come to the conclusion that it isn’t.
I’d been to shop the organic market, the Asian market and Aldi. On the way home, I started feeling lightheaded. I could have chalked it up to not having enough to eat but I’d taken a green smoothie with me and sat outside in the sun to drink it. I wondered what was going on. Maybe my blood sugar (as Barney would say, “my sugar blood”) was low and I needed to get home and eat some more. Once I did have another meal, I still didn’t feel at all well.
Next morning, when I was driving to work, I started feeling woozy. I take my juice and green smoothie with me in the a.m. and it was possible I would feel better after I conSOOMED them. Sure enough, an hour or so later, I was fine. That afternoon, it was a repeat of the morning. Strange.
I’m not real bright at times and it took me this long to figure it out. There must be a breach in something somewhere in my car that’s letting noxious fumes inside. I’ll be perky as can be on the way out but as soon as I close the car door, I start wilting. It happens too often not to be related.
Could it be carbon monoxide? I don’t know. I’ll get a slight nagging headache that clears up once I’ve been in another environment for an hour or so.
Today, I cracked the windows as I drove and it did seem to help some. Do I need to take my car to the dealer or can the man at my local gas station find the problem? I don’t want to drive it too far. I had planned to celebrate my birthday by going to Aldi, etc., Sunday but I’m not going to chance it.
Anybody out there have any advice? Please leave me a comment if you do. My life could depend on it.
