Here’s to our youngest daughter, Karalyn the Seattleite, for hands-on replacing the battery in her car just now.
O’Reilly Auto Parts didn’t want to install it due to its placement below the engine’s computer, so she did it her damned self.
If you’ve ever replaced a car battery, you know how tough it can be getting the terminal clamps loose, but I listened to her muscle through, cajoling it where I would be cursing. Reset the computer, and now she’s back on the road.
This is what comes from raising independent, strong-minded women. (Not that I’d have had much choice, given the one I married. But I like to think I had some hand in it, maybe as a cheerleader.) Good on you, Karly!
