Flat Tire

I got a flat on the way home from work today. The good news is that I have a good reason to get new tires - I have felt since this past winter that something wasn't quite right with either my tires or my steering, but everytime I've had it checked out I've been told that it was all in my head. I do, in fact, have things wrong with my head, but that's a whole other issue. Of course when the roadside rescue guy showed up to put on the spare that was flat, too. I wonder if those little not-a-regular-sized-but-you-are-screwed-so-you-don't-mind
-as-long-as-it-gets-you-home tires are sold somewhere? The only ones I've ever seen have either been deep in the trunk being taken out by someone who would rather be doing almost anything else or already on a car looking like the ugly stepchild runt tire. Tomorrow morning I'll get the chance to ask while I'm buying new tires (the one that went flat today looked worn enough that I expect I'll be buying at least two - that's what they say, right? - and possibly a whole fabulous set of four). It will be nice to sleep in a little, too, so that I'll be well rested while I'm opening my wallet.
