Still Tippin on Four Fours...

There was this one time when my mother-in-law determined that her Mercedes Benz needed new tires. But rather than waste her money on the 4 new tires, she opted to just buy herself a new Lexus SUV instead. That's right, she's a baller like that, so I thought it was hella cool when she pulled up to my house in her new pimped out ride.

So the other day I was checkin out my quasi-pimped out ride and noticed that my 2 front tires were COMPLETELY BALD. This is probably due to the fact that I like to zoom all around Suburbia like a NASCAR driver, high on cocaine. Also, it explains why my tires haven't had any traction when it rains and why I keep burning rubber at all the stop lights.

It was at this point that I thought to myself, "WWMMILD?" (What would my mother-in-law do?) and determined that I too needed to buy myself a new car. But alas, I suddenly remembered that I am not a rich woman, married to the VP of a well known oil company, like she is. Plus, I spent all of my money on purses and shoes this month. So my dream of owning a new beamer is still on hold. But I did go to Discount Tire and buy myself some spankin new wheelz. (I spelled that with a 'z' cuz I from the streetz. BOOYAH!) And I upgraded from an H speed rating, to a V speed rating, which means that my car is now equipped for me to drive like Speed Racer.

Now if I can just find a place that sells discount Grillz...

The whole car thing is what really keeps me from moving to Texas (there is a whole movement designed around me moving to Houston, but it's HOT yo). I just really enjoy life on public transportation and not having to pay for gas ($2.46 a gallon WHAT?). Not owning a car also means I don't gotta buy new tires. See all part of the masterplan.

I too was going to send you some super-duper secreto info. I'm a reached at somegirlatlaughingalltheway@hotmail.com...

Kisses.

Must be the season for new tires. I'm getting mine on Monday!

some girl - we're not paying the outrageous cost-of-living for other stuff like you guys do in Boston, so *that* is how we afford fancy things like cars and tires. Although I will readily admit that I would pick up and live in Boston in about 2 seconds if I thought I could afford it! I've got a pic of Harvard Square on my work desktop as we speak!

:-D

glad you got new wheelz, seesta!

I won't need new wheelz for a long long while....what with being an urbanite in a very small town, I've had my car 4 years today and it only has 18740 miles on it. That's not even 5000 in a year.

But I have a ton o' reasons for buying lots o' shoes ;-)
