Default Donut tire

I came out of school to see that my right front tire on Grandma'* revenge was completly flat! I quickly noticed a nice screw had been lodged in it! After putting the donut tire on I also noticed that that tire was low on air too, but I was able to drive it to the local tire shop. God, I'm already stressed out this week because of homecoming, then to add to the joy I had to change my tire on the rain soaked ground! Oh, this is going to be a great week!

Could have been worse. The nail could have been in the sidewall.
I've never once had a bad week. I usually have a couple of bad days then some good ones, I always break even. :P
