While Liz is away, I’m keeping an eye on her Vespa. Drove it in to work today, despite the 50% chance of rain (luckily, all the thunderstorms happened during the workday).
The Vespa has had some problems lately (it wouldn’t start about 2 weeks ago, randomly). And after some finagling and a battery charge… it’s functioning again, after a solid week of slumber.
I’m riding it around to keep it in use, and to make sure no additional problems arise. I’m keeping an eye on it and making sure it’s still running while Liz is out of town. In a way, I’m doing it because it’s my responsibility, because I’m looking out for it. Not because it’s fun.
It uh… just happens to be fun.
