This afternoon I went out to my van to run some errands, only to discover that one of the back sliding doors had been left slightly open and my battery had died. As I attempted several times to turn the car on, a funny thing happened. Our built-in DVD player ejected The Jungle Book 2. This is funny because I haven't seen this movie since about June 2007, when this same DVD player stopped working. We really wanted to fix it before we went to San Diego, but I just couldn't justify spending the money on it. To be honest I had forgotten that we had one in our car. So, out pops the movie and suddenly the DVD player is working again. It's like finding a $20 bill in your coat pocket. A nice surprise, even if we had to push the car out of the garage in order to get it close enough to another one to jump the battery.
