So yesterday when I walked out of the mall (where I got my hair done and purchased the cutest little pair of earrings that I'll post about later), while thinking to myself what a nice night it was, I was dismayed to find one of my tires as flat as a pancake. Of course I called Joseph, who, by the way, never ceases to amaze me with his calm - and even enthusiastic - attitude when crappy stuff like this happens.
To make a long story short, we ended up at Target with this little kit called "Slime Smart Spair." I was amazed at how simple this little kit made repairing my tire. No jacks or tools required. Just a little sheet of directions. You fill up the tire with the Slime, plug in the pump to your cigarette lighter, and fill the tire. 15 minutes and you're done. After all was finished, I thought "I could have done that!"
I was able to make it all the way home before my car starting telling me the pressure of the tire was getting low. This morning, the tire was low, but not flat. The Slime definitely holds long enough to get you to a repair place.
I'm posting this because I think everyone - especially women and those people living in crappy weather - needs to keep a kit of this stuff in their trunk. If my tire were flat and I was far from help, I don't think I could manage changing it myself (although I like to think desperation would kick in and I'd figure it out). But I COULD do this Slime stuff. Easily.
