Crazy Cars and other assorted stuff..... here's more than you ever wanted to know about Byers family vehicles. In 1996, just before Collin was born, we got a Toyota Tercel. Being the total guy that Aaron is, he bought new wheels and tires for it, claiming that they were "better." In 1997, I manage to put the car into a ditch, mistakenly thinking that I'd seen my sister-in-law on the street next to me. At the time, we didn't think that any of the rims were bent. We were mistaken. Fast forward to 2000, when we buy our current crap car, which I've lovingly named the Jelly Bean, because of it's purple color. it's a dark purple, but it's purple nonetheless, and is NOT a shade that I would choose for myself. Again, being the man that he is, Aaron put the wheels (that were once on the Tercel) on the Jelly Bean, currently called my Purple POS (you know what POS stands for, right?). Well, it's since come to light that, in 1997, I DID bend the rim, but only enough to cause a slow leak in the tire. No big deal, we needed new tires anyway, so got new tires to fit the OLD wheels, and Aaron put them on my car. I drive said car for three days, all the time thinking that something must be wrong, because the damn thing was shaking every time my foot wasn't on the gas. Well, apparently, I'm one lucky mofo, because the tires were LOOSE. I drive on INTERSTATE to get to work. He's since tightened the wheels.

...oh, and per Katie's request, I will share what my ringtone is.... It's "Fat Bottomed Girls" by Queen. I wanted something sassy, so there you have it! ;)

So, does "Fat Bottomed Girls play on your phone, or does it play on Aaron's phone when you call him? That's as funny as me wanting "It's hard out here for a Pimp" No wonder I love you so much, we both love a little sass and a little fun in our lives.

Love the cell phone ring...I'm getting Verizon soon, too, once I move to Columbus and change the #. Cant wait to see you guys at the baptism tomorrow and for father's day! I miss seeing you guys! Maybe we could hang out afterwards b/c I have a new CD for you guys to burn that you'll like! See you later!
