one of the dumbest things I have ever done...or kids will make you crazy

Well, I meant well! I wanted to take my parents to the black forest on a day trip. Sarah was driving me crazy in the car. She started to cry because the trip was too long. I missed my exit. I needed gas. I have never filled Juergens new Mercedes van up with gas. I filled the car up with regular gas. 2 minutes later the engine begins to fail. I stop the car right away and put on the emergency signal. Then I realize my mistake...Juergen's van takes Diesel fuel. I could have killed the car!!! Anyway, Nicole’s cell phone is out of power, and my cell phone is lost. I took Sarah with me to try to get help. I called Juergen who called the right people. Then the tow truck comes and tows us to a garage. We eat at a chicken place across the road. It took another 6 hours to get back on the road. It was a long day!!! I could kiss the ground because we are once again home!!! Have you ever done anything stupid? I have more to say but right now I just need some sleep. Thank God we are all safe, and I didn’t kill the car! I am sure there are nicer ways to pass a day, but I’m sure my parents will never forget this day!!!
