Seems like I couldn't escape all things "carwash" over the weekend. It all started on Friday night. I had been in bed all day with an awful cold. There was nothing on TV, so the mister and I decided to order a show on Netflix. We ordered Breaking Bad. It was depressing, but excellent. And the main star of the show, Walter White, works at a carwash. He isn't necessarily a good role model as he makes meth in a RV, so let's hope there aren't any scenes that take place at the carwash involving a drug deal. We only got through five episodes, but so far, nothing bad has happened at the wash.

The next night, there was still nothing on TV, and then, while scrolling through the channels, I came across the movie, The Wash, starring Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. It was awful. And did not put carwashing in a good light, to say the least.

Then, on Sunday, I was finally feeling a bit better and the family and I decided to try a few games of bowling. Wouldn't you know it, our bowling lane was sponsored by Hoffman's Carwash. What are the chances. Of all the bowling lanes in all the world, I get the one sponsored by a carwash. After that, we ended up taking the carwash to Hoffman's to wash off all of the salt. It was my baby's first ride through a conveyor. I think he really enjoyed it.
