Goodbye my car, Black Pickle.
I sold my car today.
Most people are actually shocked that I didn’t sell it before I left to travel for the first time. But, if you remember, my original plan was to only be abroad for about 9 months and then road trip around the US. And I would have needed my car for that. But then I ended up staying away for 15 months. And then I didn’t road trip for various reasons. And then I had to get a new battery. And a new tire. And my car got towed and I didn’t notice until 9 days later. And I decided that I really should get rid of him.
It’s sad, because my Saturn took me to Mount Rushmore and North Carolina and countless eating contests. And I imagined him taking me to 48 states. But, right now, it makes no sense for me to keep him around. Plus, I owed Heather five months of back-rent. So I took him to Carmax today, accepted their offer, and handed off everything they gave me to Heather.
It’s sad, but for the best.
So goodbye my car, Black Pickle. Goodbye.
