Took car (2004 model) in for 30K service yesterday. That alone set me back $500. Got a late-afternoon call letting me know that I also needed new front and rear brakes. Another $500. I'm getting my quarterly bonus on Friday. I've always dreamed of spending my bonus getting work done on my car! All my prayers have been answered.
When I put Riley in the car this morning, he reached for a couple of linking letters that were on the floor of the backseat. I reached down to get them for him and said, "Oh, you want those letters? There are two letters for you. What letters are they? Let's see . . . we have V, and, well, would you look at that, the other letter is D! We have VD! Fantastic!" I was more amused than Riley, that's for sure.
