By now, you should all have set your clocks back an hour, seeing as Daylight Saving Time officially ended on Sunday, which was four days ago. Or maybe you somehow missed that occurrence and are reading this thinking, “OH! So that’s why I was ridiculously early to all of my meetings this week!”
Anyway, we had not driven anywhere since before our trip to Chicago. Due to an unusual situation, I drove this morning (no, pigs are not flying, at least not yet), and as I pulled away from the curb, I noticed that it was 8:30am instead of 7:30am. After bringing the car up-to-date on the time change, I filled up with gas for the first time in I don’t know how long.
I found the drive to be less horrid than I expected, although, as further incentive to ride my bike, the trunk seems to be leaking and has not aired out or dried completely, so the car has a special aroma that I would describe as Rotten Milk. Somehow, I don’t see that being the next new scent trend in car air fresheners.
