“What is the plural of Lewis?”

For almost two years now, I have dreaded the rain for one reason. When it rains, my driver side floorboard fills up with water. It gets about ankle-deep. My car has about two hundred thousand miles on it, but it still runs great.

However, when it rains, it is like I’m driving around sitting on the edge of one those blue plastic baby pools they sell outside of Wal-Mart and K-Mart. I bought one for my big poodle, Doolittle recently, but I haven’t convinced him to get into it. He just wants to drink the water.

Why haven’t I done anything about the water problem?

I have.

I bail it out, soak it up and keep trying to figure out where it’s coming from. I’ve resealed the window and taken it to the dealership, both to no avail. The folks at the dealership said, “We sprayed water on it for 15 minutes and it didn’t leak.”

They need to come soak their feet with me. I’ve thought about putting Epsom Salts in when it gets up high enough and making the best of it.

The guys at work are supposed to be really smart and good at solving problems. The best idea that one of them had was to install a drain in my floorboard. That made sense – perhaps a shower drain with one of those rubber plugs so I could reach in and just let the water out when it rains.
