You realize it’s inevitable. But still you want to believe it won’t happen to you. After avoiding it for 10 years, I thought I might escape. But then one day, driving along minding my own business, it happened.
This followed soon after:
My little 10-year-old car has turned 100,000 kilometres.
I realize she’s a little late to reach this milestone, but walking to work for five years meant very low mileage.
Since moving to the farm, the kilometres have been rolling over very quickly. Along with higher mileage comes more trips to the gas station, more oil changes, more tune-ups and more money.
Small price to pay when my drive home ends at the farm.
