My car hit something tonight, but fortunately, it wasn’t something on the road! It was a nice little milestone.
100,000 on the odometer.
I told my dad recently that it was approaching that sixth digit, and he said, “It won’t be long now.”
“Til what,” I asked.
“You’ll be shopping for a new car.”
I assured him that this would not be the case. At this point, I’m fully prepared to drive this car until the wheels fall off of it. I have no desire to own a new car, and I have no desire to go into debt buying a used car.
Yes, I said used. The whole “pre-owned” thing is ridiculous.
Given the choice of shopping for something newer, or keeping a car that’s paid for in as good a shape as I can, there’s really no choice at all.
I hope she hangs on to the 200,000 mark.
