Here has been my typical day lately:
I was getting all my paperwork together at my office. I have had a long day and quite a bit of overtime. If I was not mistaken I may have been the only one working in the office. But I was happy to get all the work done and go home. I loved my business suits. I wore my nice red long sleeved suit with a skirt just below the knee, I also wore nude hose witch felt real good on my legs as well as some sexy off white t-strap sandals (made by penaljo) with a platform bottom and heel and red painted toes. I always love how I look with my 6' 0" frame. I also wore a white blouse with a red bow tie to match the suit the outfit which made me feel vey confident.
I now was walking over the parking garage to my car an 84 Oldsmobile delta 88. It is a hard starting car but i love it, especially its soft leather seats which are great to bounce on, as I do just about everyday it seems!
I went into the drivers side and shut the door and put the key in the ignition.
"ok honey your going to get mommy home tonight are you" I said as I pumped the gas pedal three times and then held it 3/4 to the floor Each pump was gentle and to the floor""Start for mommy" I said as I turned the key
The big engine cranked briskly for10 seconds without any signs od starting, I then pumped the pedal three more times with my sandaled foot and held it to the floor with the same gentle strokes and the last time I turned the key for 15 seconds and again cranked brskly with no signs of starting "Come on baby be a good girl for mommy and start for me" I pumped three more times the same gentle strokes then I turned the key as I continued to pump and bounce. This time the car cranked briskly for 20 seconds and mid way started to tease tease tease me and then went back to cranking. I turned the key for a good thirty seconds still pumping the same gentle strokes and it teased all the way thorugh then cranked toward the end.
Come on baby girl you want to start for me I know you do, maybe mommy flooded you a little bit I then held the pedal all the way to the floor, the car cranked and taesed for 25 seconds then answered with a roar
ATtta girl I knew you could do it.
I revved my Oldsmobile a few times and then I put the old girl in drive as I sped away from the garage. I love the feel of the leather seat, I love how the car gives me power and I love how my size 10 foot pushes the oldsmobiles gas pedal.
I went up to the ticket window and stopped to put my parking pass inside the slot and then the gate went up. I got my pass and proceed to go. I put my sandalled foot on the gas pedal. The car lurched two feet and then suddenly stalled. The lights lit up in my face in the darkness.
"Come on baby Don't do this to mommy" I put the car in park and pumped the gas three times and then turned the key and cranked for 15 seconds, the car teased and teased then chugged and stalled again. I pumped three more times and held it to the floor, then cranked the car for 20 seconds agian, the car teased and teased then the last five seconds just cranked. I kept my foot on the gas to the floor and tried again the car cranked for about 15 seconds briskly without a single tease and no signs of wanting to start
"come on baby start for me i know you want to" I pumped three more times before turning the key I continued to pump as I cranked the car for twenty seconds just cranking was all I got. I contined to pump and turned the key for 30 seconds, I mouthed the words "come on" repeatedly as I cranked and my baby for some reason would not even try to start. I continued my gentle strokes pumping the gas but this time with a little more urgency and bounce all the way to the floor as I pumped this time I cranked the car for 40 seconds there was no signs still of the car wanting to start and now about halfway the cranking started to slow a little bit. I again continued to pump, now I was noticeably bouncing a little bit more thorough the windsheild I am sure!
I turned the key this time for 45 seconds The car did not crank as briskly as before and still there was no sign of trying to start "come on baby start for me pleeeeeese" the cranking slowed a little bit more now, I was starting to worry about running down my baby's battery. Then a stranger tapped on the door.
It was a security guard that just got hired last week, He asked "any problem miss?", I pass as a true girl
I replied "yes i am so sorry, my car won't start"
"well pop open the hood let me take a look"
I grabbed the hood door under the dash and the hood popped open. the secuirty gaurd nosed around as he lifted the hood up.he noticed something near the distributor a coil wire to a spark plug was loose. He fiddled with the plug and then managed to get it fitted.
"ok give it another shot"
I then turned the key, she gave out four small groans and then cranked for about 15 seconds, the cranking was somewhat faster than the last time and it teased teased teased putted and stalled. I then held the pedal to the floor thinking she was flooded. I turned the key again, four small groans slighty longer than the last ones then teased for a solid five seconds and started right up!
I thank the security gaurd and drove off!
I was driving along on the city streets. The engine in the car was putting along, I was very happy my baby started, my engine was sounding a little rough but nothing out of the ordinary. I saw a red light in the intersection, my nyloned foot pressed on the brake as I was waitng for the light to turn green . The car then statred to buck a little bit and I worried a little bit. I put the car in park and then revved the engine a few times so it wouldn't stall. The light then turned green. I put the car in drive and hit the gas, the car lurched foward passed the intersection bucked a few more times. The car was about to stall and I knew it, so I pulled over to the side then the car stalled.
Come on honey please be good to me and start for mommy, now turning on my hazards with a gentle bounce as I began to pump her again.
I turned the key and four small groans came out again, I let go of the key qucikly and dry pumped the gas three times, I turned the key again, four longer groans the car cranked sluggishly for ten seconds. No signs of starting. I tried again three more gas pedal pumps and turning the key again and four even longer groans
and slower cranking for about ten more seconds. I was now really worried and got out of the car and popped the hood to see the wire was loose again. I fiddled with it and got it fitted the best I could "i hope that works I said as I closed the hood and got back in the car. Three gentle loving pumps to the gas and I turned the key, four long groans 10 seconds of slooooow cranking, as I pump the gas three times in the middle of this round and nothing. My battery was getting weaker so I had to do one thing, keep pumping the gas and hold the key till it starts or die trying while pumping and bouncing like crazy.
I pumped the gas three times and turned the key, my pumping was gentle but quick and desperate as the car groaned for a good 15 seconds then it teased for 5 seconds and graoned for ten then teased for five seconds then miracalsy started.
YES! I said she put the car in drive and it stalled again
NO! NO! NO!
I pumped the gas genlty and quickly I turned the key, it groaned paused groaned paused groaned paused for 15 seconds it was not going to start. I held the key and put the gas to the floor, the car groaned puased groaned paused for 20 seconds and the dreaded click!
I turned the key one las time, click click !!!! GREAT i exhaled as I lit another cigarette.
I hung my head on the steering wheel and cried!
