I've down-sized

Temporarily, that is. I took the Tahoe in to the garage this morning and got a loaner. I guess the fact that the guys in the garage were running behind and I had both kids with me spurred the guy behind the desk to grab a loaner. Well, I can't blame him, I wasn't looking forward to spending time in the waiting area with both kids.

So, now I've got a Pontiac Sunfire. It's red too! I feel like my ass is going to get scraped off, I'm so close to the road! It's sitting out in the garage right now, like a toy. It's amazing how much more room there is out there with a smaller vehicle in the Tahoe's place.

I decided to call the garage back and tell them to go ahead and do the steering stuff too, since they already have my vehicle and I have a loaner. That way I get all this stuff done, and can stop worrying. Now I've just got to find a good body shop to fix a couple rust spots.

You say "Vic, why not just get a newer Tahoe?" No way. I don't like the newer Tahoes. Besides, I plan to drive that thing basically into the ground, and besides, in the eight years I've had it this has to be the first major stuff I've had to deal with.

So, all you SUV haters out there will be happy to know that for the next few days, at least, there will be one less big honkin' truck on the road.
