Well, the auto shop said that there was only tire damage, so I will buy a roll of duct tape (for where the side of the front fender was broken) and keep the car (for 2 or 3 years hopefully) without fixing the body damage (and accept the auto insurance money).
You may recall, that I am an engineer and as such take little pride in my appearance or image.
And in case you were wondering, I will not be using duct tape to fix my (most likely) failed vasectomy.
... and contrary to what I may have implied, all this did not happen on x-mas day. The rolling tire mishap occurred on the 23rd and my doctor informed me of my unwanted non-sterility on the 15th.
But, despite these annoying issues, my x-mas turned out to be pretty good.
Socialism - Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
