My Accord is running again.

I flushed the radiator again, disconnected the Civic heater core, reconnected the one under the dash, filled up the radiator, turned on the engine, cranked up the heater, and got cool, but humid air.

This is fine.

That was after my brother asked to go to Safeway, which went much like asking to go to Family Dollar, except I said "I have ways of making you talk!" and did half an hour of speech therapy with him. Then I went through two food ads and had him name all of the common objects twice.

He didn't indicate that he wanted anything.

I told him "I am taking you, but I am fixing my car first!"

He just walked up and down every aisle. He did not give any indication that he wanted to buy anything.

I needed milk, so I grabbed that, and dragged him to the checkout.

When we got home Mom demanded "Did you pick up dinner?!"

"No! Why would I?!"

"Go back and get Burger King!"

I tried to find some things to work on my car, but couldn't. I wanted to find those things today, but spent the day researching slide-out kitchen pantries, converting pot and pan shelves into drawers, and stuff like that. I played a game for half an hour or an hour this morning.

I always think that I will have hours to play on Sunday, but that often does not happen.
