For those who don’t subject themselves to my Twitter feed, I traded Jeepish in yesterday. During a very recent conversation, my husband told that, thanks to his commute, he’s spending $500 a month on gas. Now that camp time is upon us, it’ll be $700 a month. And that didn’t count gas I put in the 4Runner, which averaged 14-15mpg.
So we decided to trade Jeepish for a vehicle with crazy-good gas mileage and he would drive it for his commute while I would, once again, drive the pick-up. To rub salt in the wound, the car is the one that I have wanted for months: a 2012 Ford Fiesta hatchback in Lime Squeeze.
Kermit! I think it looks a little more yellow-y in the picture I took, but it’s a hot lime green. Isn’t it adorable? And 40mpg! Yay! And I got to watch it drive away while I get to drive…this:
I guess I’ll be taking care of the truck’s burned-out blinker. And the malfunctioning ABS system. And the front tire that doesn’t hold air worth a damn. Needless to say, I’ll be cleaning it out as soon as the rain lets up.
And, despite the Kermit face and the fact she’s not mine to drive, her name is Lolly. (Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly-lolly-pop…)
