THE LATEST DAMAGE

Tori continues to amaze us with her exploits.  For example, commutergirl took her in last week for new tires, and it turns out that one of her wheels is one-sixteenth of an inch larger than the others, which is why Tori has also been having alignment problems.  I don't know where she got that, but I'm sure she didn't learn that kind of behavior from us.

So anyway, we went to get the tires replaced, and now, $805 later, we're waiting for the right size of wheel to come in.  Oh, and did I mention the transmission is going out?

Tori originally came at a very good price . . . if she hadn't come at such a good price, we probably would have been like

SHUT UP, MISTER OBESE USED CAR SALESMAN

and gone on our way.  Tori was there when we needed her, and, believe me, we're grateful for that.  But boy HOWDY is she turning into a money pit now.  $198/month for a FrontRunner pass is really starting to seem like a bargain these days.
