Today I used the car to run an errand. I needed to go to a store about 10 blocks away and spend less than $5 on the thing I needed to buy. And I used the car.
And I loved it.
I needed to repark the car for street-sweeping anyway. And the store I was going to had a parking lot. And it feels so good to drive. So we drove. And I tried to think of other places to go and other excuses to drive and I couldn't think of any. So, we came home and I parked the car on the other side of the street.
I really like having a car. We know a lot of people who not only do not have a car, but don't even have a driver's license. And that makes a lot of sense here. You really don't need one. And insurance rates and gas prices are pretty steep. And you have to repark it for street sweeping or you get a hefty ticket. And once someone threw up on our car. And that was really gross.
But, it's worth it.
And that's all I have for you today.
