We purchased a car today. The Toyota Matrix is our new friend. It's safer to drive on the rainy road out to La Honda; it seats four instead of two; now is the time to buy since I've got a job now and I may not when the truck decides to give out.
I feel very spoiled by the car, but I see its necessity. It freaks me out to have something that nice, new, expensive, and undamaged sitting out in front of the house.
