boxes of thin mints are in our house today.
(along with a new car.)
For the last TEN years, Smith and I have been a one car household. Shortly after we got married, we traded in his pickup truck and my non-operational BMW sedan (how I miss her leather seats, her tilty sunroof, her stick shift! and how I do not miss the repair bills...) We would commute together in the JEEP or take public transit where applicable. In fact, we rather enjoyed the joint commute as a time to devote to each other to stay connected.
And with having one car, we agreed that it would be okay to rent a car from time to time as the need arose. Since our need has essentially been every week since last November, we finally purchased another car. Ta-Da! And now we are the proud owners of a Toyota Prius. She is black (yes, entirely unsuitable for Texas we know) and very fish like. I didn't get the "fish" part until I got in and went for a ride. She's fat up front and thin in the back. A puffer fish? a flying fish? a grouper? We are taking input for a fish related nickname for the car...
