Rattles

For the last week there has been this horrible rattle in my car. My new car. A Falling-Apart rattle every time I went over a bump. I tried a lot of things trying to discover the rattle. And every time I heard it again I would get cold with worry.

"What if my car is falling apart?"

And then after a week of this I noticed it was getting worse. Now I was really worried. I checked a few other things. Made sure the seats weren't loose. Made sure something wasn't rolling around in the trunk. Looked under the seats. Repeat. Once I even pulled over to try moving something. Still rattled.

And then one day when it was horribly loud I happened to look up. The sun visor was loose. I hooked it in and haven't heard a rattle since! Sometimes I'm a little slow. But thankfully my car sounds newish again.

Phew! We had a scary rattle too, but after I blew the air really hard through the vents, the leaf dislodged itself. I was really worried too!

I have a cute rattle in my car but it' nothing big. You don't hear it on the highway. Although reading this story made me think, you are totally a McLean!
