My car's on vacation

I was driving down Legacy on my way home yesterday when my brakes nearly went out. I was coming up to a light pretty fast and the pedal went soft and just kept going closer and closer to the floor. I was barely slowing down when finally the car really started braking with the pedal against the floorboard. I had to head north on 121 to get to the dealership... lots of fun during rush hour with brakes that could go out at any moment. When I got there my brake fluid poured out on to the service floor, and then my journey was done.

They say my car will be ready tomorrow.

Oh, by the way -- Maddy slept all the way through the night last night, we'll see how tonight goes!

I'm just glad to hear your ok. I've been in a kit car that did that on the road. We had to down shift and switch lanes to slow down. That was considered normal!!! (I haven't been in that car since). Did they say what exactly happened?
