So, this happened today.
Luckily we were right in front of a store
and were able to pull into the parking lot.
After calling AAA for roadside assistance,
we went inside, grabbed some snacks
and laid out our Sesame Street blanket on the sidewalk outside the store.
We sat down to wait.
We enjoyed our impromptu picnic, texted family about the flat,
saw a rainbow, took a few pictures
and watched the temporary spare get installed on our car.
Soon we were on our way none the worse for wear.
