"Don't say that," she said. "Now something'll happen."

I tell Aimee I'll be home Sat. night ~ 11:30 barring unforeseen circumstances.

"Don't say that," she said. "Now something'll happen."

I get on the beltway and my gas pedal falls off.

The gas pedal works like a vertical seesaw. Your gas pedal seesaw is connected by a horizontal bolt to a metal box which works like a fulcrum. The metal box is welded to your floorboard.

Unles you're me.

Parts + $200 labor from Koons Ford (http://www.koons.com/) to fix Ford's (http://www.ford.com/) failed gas pedal welding. More later.

Koons couldn't reweld it. They had to bolt it back together.

For those of you keeping score, I broke the gas pedal in a way the DEALER'S body shop couldn't fix.
