Happy Early Birthday To Me

Since my birthday’s in only ten days, I decided to give myself an early birthday present. As you may know, my car has been needing some major repairs, so I decided to start afresh and get myself a brand new comfy car.  New cars usually get better gas mileage than old, beat-up ones.

I got a big discount on it, something to do with rising gas prices or something, so it’s a good way to save money. Anyhoo, I decided I was hungry, so after waiting for about a half hour in a drive-through with my car running (keeps the MPG more efficient), I finally got some delicious comida. Unfortunately, I finished it before I got home, so I had to throw my wrappers and cup out the window, but no problema, since they biodegrade quite rapidly.

When I finally got home, I decided to change my new car’s oil.  A properly-tuned car can save you a lot of money, and also emits less pollution. But what to do with the old oil? I looked around til I found a suitable place, and then dumped it all there.


All in all, I feel I made a pretty solid purchase. This is probably the best pre-birthday I have ever had.
