On Wednesday, my check engine light on the dash board came on. Actually it had been lighting up and off all week and is due for an oil change or top off. So I looked in the trunk, hoping that my roomate who sold me the car just two weeks ago, left some engine oil in it. I saw a big black plastic can that was full of something that felt oily. I was like, great there's oil. I open the bonnet/hood of the car and began trying to pour out the liquid into the engine. BUT the can seemed too big, bigger than normal and I thought to myself, there's gotta be another way to pour this thing in without making a big mess. So just as I pulled the can away from the engine, I happened to take a peek inside the can. The color of the oil was green and that kinda baffled me. I began to think to myself if this was some new brand of oil, or was coloring added to make it more attractive. Then I thought to my self again, 'duh...perhaps you should look at the label.' I then looked at the labeling on the can and it read, "...COOLANT!!!"
I was like 'UH...OMG'.... came 'THIS' close to destroying my car, and the funny thing is that it all happened in a split second. I began to thank God and cast away the evil spirits of dumbness that overcame me for that short period. Sometimes, I just cannot explain somethings, may be in a previous life I was a ditzy blonde because 'that's so Jessica' and i am sure there will be others...trust me.
