My car, my blue beauty, is away for a sleep over tonight.

I hope she’s doing okay.

I kept finding damp carpet on the right side of the car but I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from and if it was after the rain or a car wash, or what it was from.

Last week the dampness was suddenly a puddle on top of the carpet! It was completely soaked!

The car dealership found the problem so it is staying overnight at the shop and they are fixing the leak, and replacing the carpet underlay – all under warranty. The carpet work is supposed to be stinky business, so they asked to keep it overnight.

It feels weird not having her parked loyally outside my door, or nestled in with all the other cars at work during the day.
