My new powerstroke!

This weekend is a pretty big deal at Texas A&M. It's the first football game and first home game and it's the first Midnight Yell of the year. Every year they get someone big to headline First Yell, last year it was Bill Cosby, this year it was Jeff Dunham. My dad wanted to go dove hunting but I wanted to see Jeff Dunham so I planned a whole weekend for my sister and me to spend here in College Station. I don't have Friday classes so I went home on Thursday and saw my parents and puppy before they left to go hunting. Friday, I went to pick my sister up from school so we could go back to College Station and my car wouldn't start. Crap. So I called my dad and he told me to take his truck to get Krystal. Then when I got back he diagnosed my car's problem over the phone as an issue with the fuel pump. Crap. There was nothing we could do and if we waited for any of my dad's friends to come look at it, we would have missed Jeff Dunham. So my dad told me to take his truck back to school. Well, driving my dad's truck kind of scares me so I needed a pep talk from him and my mom but I drove it here and all around College Station and everything was fine. Plus Jeff Dunham was awesome and the Aggies beat the hell outta New Mexico 41-6

Unfortunately, my dad is taking his truck back tomorrow, and I was just starting to like it

My dad's going to fix my poor car and hopefully my boss is fine with me going home this weekend. If she is then my mom's going to pick me up on Thursday or Friday and take me home and I'll drive my car back Sunday. If I can't leave this weekend then they're just going to bring it to me.

Lol! I can't afford one. Maybe I'll drive my dad's some more now and eventually get one. I like that no one messes with me when I drive it because they know I can run them over

I don't think that will work. I was supposed to get his Wrangler when I got my license but he sold it to buy his truck. And I don't think my mom will go for it.

An F250 and it's a 6.0. That's all I know about it, except that it's on the extreme race tune, which added to my fear of driving it.
