How does someone who wakes up every weekday morning at 4am find himself looking for dinner after 10pm? I blame rock music. Rock concert first. Dinner second.
As I was about to go to sleep, I received a fraud alert on my phone. Someone in New Jersey was using my credit card number. So I went back downstairs.and spent the requisite 30 minutes canceling my credit card and arranging for a new one. Then I wrote down all the automatic bill payments that card affected. I went back upstairs. Put my head on the pillow and passed out. Except I had not set any of my alarms. Phones off, I slept until 6:20 when my neighbor Jimmy got in my house to wake me up. Angel Mary Dixon had located him and told him I was M.I.A. It’s bad enough to oversleep by about 90 minutes, but then one is faced by ordinary rush hour traffic. I don’t know how people do that every day. The Lin Brehmer Farewell to Reality Week continues.

What have I been up to? Well, this morning I went out to start my wife’s car. It’s the only one we have at this moment. Put the key in the ignition, pushed down the clutch, turned the key…..and nothing. Checked the lights. Battery’s fine. Kept trying. No sound. No nothing. I host a morning radio show so it’s hard to disguise a late arrival. Not impossible, mind you. So on to plan B. Called a cab. 15 minutes later cab picked me up and took me downtown. A work-anxiety nightmare come to life. When my wife woke up, she called AAA to get a tow to our friends at HAAS. She tried to see if the car would turn over. It wouldn’t. Before hooking the car up, AAA tried to start it. No go. Just won’t start. Car was towed. I decide to rent a car for the next day or so to avoid a succession of 40 dollar cab rides. My wife gets a call from auto repair. They have diagnosed the problem. What’s your guess? Solenoid problem? Starter shot? Battery strong enough for lights but not to turn over the engine. Wrong. The recently shampooed carpet mat had bunched up under the clutch pedal. So when the clutch could not be fully depressed, the car wouldn’t start.
