I thought it would have happened on Saturday, but on Sunday my beloved 1996 Saturn with the dent in the roof passed the 200,000 mile mark.
Isn’t that awesome? You’re probably thinking, “Whew! Maybe now we’ll stop hearing about this bloody car,” but for me, this was one of those days of infamy I wrote about last month. Yep, right up there with the moon landing, Princess Di’s death, and the day they canceled Guiding Light. (I’m still in denial about that one.)
I’ll always remember exactly where I was when my when the odometer (that’s what it’s called, right?) hit 200K; as it turns out, we were on Auto Show Drive, almost right in front on the Saturn dealer! If it hadn’t been a Sunday, I would have marched myself in there for some public bragging.
Beloved boyfriend came over to film the milestone for me—as you can well imagine, this guy is a freakin’ saint. If you click here you can see the video. It looks like Katherine Hepburn is holding the camera, but I assure you, that’s a reflection on my driving ability, not his videography skills. It was a very exciting moment.
Yikes, I have a lot more to say, but I have to get off to work.
Long may you run!
