Grilled Shredded Cheese Bacon SandwichLong story short, I woke up extra early this morning to run an errand before work and while driving I ran over something that had a malevolent intention of destroying one of my tires. Of course, my tire light immediately illuminated and I found myself racing home before I began driving erratically on the rim.
