Luck of the Irish or Something

Enjoy this St. Patrick's Day sequence of events:
  • Put green "DOO-DAH" pin on fleece.
  • Go to work.
  • Do job.
  • Leave work.
  • Head to electric bicycle shop.
  • Lose control of car on freeway onramp, smash into right wall then left wall, totaling car.
  • Receive $153 traffic citation for "Speed too fast for conditions."
  • Hitch a $125 ride home with Marty the tow truck driver.
  • Inspect bicycle.
  • Discover broken speedometer/odometer computer.
  • Ride bicycle to spouse's place of employment for lunch.
  • Arrive at spouse's place of employment.
  • Hear hisssssssssssssss from rear tire.
  • Find hole in rear tire.
  • Remove sweaty fleece (with attached "DOO-DAH" pin).
  • Break totaled car news to spouse.
    "Good news! I took care of the coolant leak in the car..."
  • Enjoy lunch with spouse.
  • Load bicycle with now-flat rear tire into truck.
  • Drive truck home.
  • Search Internet for automobiles.
  • Pick up spouse from work.
  • Stop at some used car dealers, look at cars.
  • Arrive home.
  • Cry self to sleep.
Most of the above sequence of events really happened to... someone last Friday, March 17th. Maybe not that last one though. In any case, at least the evidence is clear: the green "DOO-DAH" pin is cursed.

If someone is in the market for a used car, I recomment Bill Pierre Chevy on Lake City Way. We bought our used silver Aveo there (same place as we got our new silver Aveo.)

Only problem is, this time of year, people are using their tax refunds to buy up all the really cheap cars, so they don't actually have any of the $500 variety. But last I checked, they had a single-owner well-maintained Saturn with 135k miles on it for about 4 grand.

Your car asplode! St Patrick will kill you and devour your soul, and he'll have your fancy electric bike for desert!

Then, St. Jesus will rescue you and from having your soul digested, and he will give you great riches and your children will rule for many generations.

Then, St. Patrick will rise from where he was cast down, and he will torment your decendants for the sins of their common patriarch.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

You should offer the pin on craigslist in exchange for a car. Write about what happened to you and how attaching it to your enemy's jacket can bring about extensive harm to their person. Post it as "My cursed pin for your working automobile."
