Hi! Wanna come over here and sit down for a minute? I think we should talk. You know, about the other day.
Now, you know I'm not one who strings together the words "I'm" and "sorry" very easily or very often. Not that I plan on doing so right now, you understand. But I think we both know that some harsh words were exchanged. Some pretty ugly things were said in the heat of the moment that one might regret, and I think that needs to be acknowledged.
No, no, there's no need to take the blame, let me finish. How were we to know that your oil filter was loose enough to come blasting off like that? How were we to know that all you really needed was a $4.99 replacement and a few quarts of oil? It could have been anything! I mean, you were spewing fluids all over the place and making really alarming scraping noises! We could have really been in trouble there!
I guess what I'm really trying to say is , I forgive you. Lets just put all of this behind us. Start afresh. Reflect on our relationship and all of the wonderful places it has brought us. Really enjoy those places and continue to go there as often as possible, and definitely not be spiteful or petty just because of some hasty name calling. What do you say, pal? Buddy?
