Care to venture a guess?

Today a dashboard warning light came on in my husband’s car.  He asked me to meet him at Sears, where we switched cars.  He drove back into town in my car, in time to teach his class. I spent part of the afternoon waiting at Sears for them to replace the alternator.

After the repair was done, I started his car, and noticed that all the radio presets had been wiped out. 

I reset them all to the NPR station.  Tee hee.  Care to guess how long it takes him to notice?

Mr Fixit at Sears said that the battery was fine; it definitely was a problem with the alternator.  My husband said the battery is 4 ½ years old.  Care to guess how long it will be before that car is back at Sears for a new battery?

In other news, by the fifth day of school, Younger Daughter had already lost her math textbook.  She claims that it doesn’t matter because she can just use the online textbook, but I know otherwise.  Care to guess how long it takes her to find it?  (This could be a trick question, because if it is in the house, it is likely that I will be the one to find it.)

1) the common household husband will notice right away, and take the car back to Sears. Without telling you.

2) the battery will die the next time he parks the car after he brings the car to Sears for the radio presets.

3) You will find Youngest Daughter's math book in the car, under the passenger seat, several weeks after she was supposed to return it.

Well, I think Alison has the correct guesses, so ... what Alison said. :-)

I like your style on the radio settings!
Alison's guesses trump anything I could come up with!
