Prior to this weekend, my sole experience with Indianapolis was driving through it on my way home from college sometime in the early eighties. It was three in the morning, in a torrential downpour, and I lost the driver's side wiper on my car.
This was in the days before cell phones or all night convenience stores, so I had to swap in the other wiper blade and rig the bare wiper arm so it wouldn't scratch the windshield. All this in the pitch dark and the pouring rain. So I never really had any fond memories of Indianapolis.
My Favorite Older Sister always yells at me if I bring this story up. She's always the first to defend Indianapolis. She said it had a lovely canal district with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. She really enjoys going there for business, and every time I mention rain or windshield wipers, she smacks me one.
So I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I'd travel to Indianapolis and see for myself what a magical and enchanted city it really is. Plus I'd see the Super Bowl. I realize there are many people out there who would die for a chance to attend the Super Bowl. To be honest, I don't really care one way or another, but through the magic of the internet I have been able to do both, and you have no real way of telling whether or not I actually did it. I now bring my story alive for YOU, so I can rub your collective faces in it and you can have the vicarious thrill of going to Indianapolis and attending the Super Bowl with me. Yeah, you feel like a winner already, don'tcha? MORE Mojo! »

So Mojo keeps passing this auto parts store in town, and they have these big honkin' signs saying they will install your windshield wipers for free. "Fast, free installation!" I believe is how they phrase it.
Have you ever installed your own wipers? If so, I think you will have to agree with me that it is one of the simplest procedures ever done to a car. Much less complex than unlocking the door and getting in one and starting it up. If you have the intellectual capacity to master the subtle intricacies of a paper clip, Mojo thinks you can handle a wiper blade. I am of the opinion that people who beg others to install their wipers for them must also be on the lookout for people to sharpen their pencils for them, too. Only--to be honest--mastering a pencil sharpener requires a little more brains and finesse. A little. MORE Mojo! »
