Headlights are fixed. It took only an hour and was covered under the warranty at no charge. Happy dancing will now commence.

Pretty good. I'm not surprised that it was covered under warranty, but I'm surprised they had the part(s) on hand and did it so quickly. Must be a frequent problem, one suspects.

I have a mental image that the mechanic went "Oh, that," finished his coffee break, and got the part out of his secret stash. In the waiting room, I had my laptop, and a novel (Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys), and a bunch of bills to pay. I expected to be there for a while. I only managed to make out the bills and write an e-mail or two. Not that I'm complaining.

Probably an accurate image. It's probably one of those problems that has appeared so many times that they have a service bulletin on it and the fix is well defined and known.

That is an awesome book! Though I think, on balance, I prefered American Gods. Marginally.

I wish I'd gotten a start on it. But the mechanics were too fast for me. I'll probably have to come up with a more complex car repair next time.

Or ... maybe I'll come up with another way to read Anansi Boys AND American Gods (I actually started that one, then got distracted).

I think probably you should read American Gods first, because it does a little bit of character setting up, though they certainly can be read independently. That was the order they were written in, anyway.

If you want a chance to read both books, them I'm afraid there's only one solution: Drive your car really fast into a street light, or, failing that, a wall. That should give you enough time, either in the mechanic's waiting room, or in hospital, depending on just how fast you're going. XP
