you may know that the motor of my (too-costly-to-ever-die)
it was still under warranty for four more years,
but the guy at the fix-it place said,
"i dunno, i think it was only a 3 year warranty...this'll probably cost you..."
but they never called to say it'd cost me--
just called to say, "it's done!"
so i went in, prepared to spend lots on a new top at least
(only warranteed one year)
so they interrogated ben about his divine intention
and handed me a box
and we left
and when we opened it
a brand brand new one!
and she's quiet as a mouse. or a vacuum cleaner.
and, of course, welcome to the second newest member of the family.
ben and i are engaged to be married at an unknown time in an unknown location.
but, we are very excited. that we know.
