Bike Commute Diaries: At the Car Wash (Yeah!)

29 Jun

With our garage reserved for our most valued transport, our poor neglected cars sit in the driveway collecting dust. It’s silly to drive just to have them cleaned. So when Caltrain cancelled my morning train and forced me to drive, I jumped at the chance to surprise Dick with a shiny washed car. Too bad there’s no bike wash in town.

      Billy Bob, you had me going there for a minute. Call me gullible! Did you notice that the car wash was made by “California Kleindienst?” Are automatic car washes a California thing?

    No Kleindienst is a Dutch name so it must be a Dutch thingie.
