Jane Domino Taking the ‘Shit Nugget’ to the Gym, 1 of 2
October 9th, 2021
She’s taking her old Bug to the gym. She’s got her hat on, a light mid-drift sweater, spandex shorts and her Nike sneakers with some socks…she’s ready to get it. The Bug….meh, not so much. It’s cranky, so it takes a little exercise to get it going on a good day but it’s been sitting a while and, well, it might take a little longer.
She talks herself through a checklist when it’s refusing to start. “Okay, it’s got gas.” and she knows it’s been sitting a while and this is somewhat normal, right?
When it does finally start, she lightly revs it a little and it sounds rough. When she puts it in reverse to back out of the garage, she says, “I don’t know if I trust you yet.”
After a 50-point turn backing out of her garage, she’s good-to-go and she’s off — not! A little rusty driving and stalls it. Now it’s not wanting to start again. Pump pump pump, turn the key, pump pump pump “OOhhh come on, it’s too hot!” A little more struggling, the car starts up again and she hits the road. She punches the gas and drives the old Bug hard, keeping those rpm’s high so that it won’t die on her.
