Said in my best Mike Myers as Dr. Evil voice, with my pinky up to the side of my mouth!!
On January 5th, 2008 at probably about 7:40 in the am, my car hit one hundred thousand miles. (I just like typing it out!) It was a very exciting moment and one I'd been long awaiting, longer than I thought because I was without my car for more than a month (reference "I mean it's already after Christmas" if your not sure why). But despite that it was a very exciting moment. I'm sure you all think I'm crazy for being so excited about it, but with every 10,000 miles I do a little celebration with myself. It's not necessarily about the number on the odometer, it's about what those miles mean in my life. My car is my main mode of transportation and since I've had it I've put roughly 75,000 miles on it; in just under 4 years. That's a lot of miles, a lot of journeys, a lot of emotions, and a lot of really important moments.
At the 80,000 mile marker I was lost in San Francisco with Laura; we were on our way to a Five for Fighting concert.
At 90,000 miles I was simply just driving home from church on a lovely Sunday afternoon.
At 100,000 I was driving up the hill, I had just passed a downed tree in the road, remnants of the previous day's storm. I was on my up the hill to get my hair done, a Christmas present from Ben and Katie. After that was Brunch with my parents and the Polley clan and then the big even of the day was Steve and Jewel's wedding. I had told a friend I hoped that when my car hit 100,000 miles, I was on my way to something important, not just the regular every day kind of driving. And when it happened I felt satisfied that the big moment happened at the start of a very big day!
green and then my battery died so I couldn't re-shoot!
