Let me tell you, people – we all take our automobile-thingys forgranted!!!
I just got back from the grocery store – according to Yahoo! Maps, it is .8 miles away – and although the trip TO was quite brisk and really not all that bad, the FROM journey certainly left less to be desired. I had thought that I had scrimped pretty well – how much can a man consume a week before he’s leaving town and requires the perishables to be gone, anyways?! Well, between a 2 liter of soda, half a gallon of milk, some mini OJ containers for work, and the basic staples of bread, cheese, and hotdogs, I was sweatin’ something fierce by the time I got back to my front door!
Come to think of it, that might not be too bad of a money saving idea – only buy as much as you would be able to walk home, in the event that your car disappeared from the parking lot.
Nah – on second thought, just take better care of old bessie and get her the regular maintenance visits as they come, rather than all at once, and we’ll probably be just fine! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a well-earned frozen pizza to prepare!
