hi, it's awkward to hug a car.
we (i) sold our car yesterday. which is very exciting because in the month we've lived here in new york, we've used the car once and that was to move things from our sublet to our new place. and since then, it's been used to move it... every couple days. for street cleaning.
one side of the street is monday/thursday street cleaning and the other side of the street is tuesday/friday. so you can see how moving the car and reparking it that often could become a real drag.
BUT. we loved that car. the car was originally ben's. and then we got married, sold my car and took ben's nicer, newer car to dc with us.
and now in nyc, there isn't need for a car. it's more hassle and expense than it is worth it to keep it lying around.
the moral of the story is:
yesterday i felt like i was giving away (or selling, rather) a member of our family. that car took us lots of amazing places, including on our first date.
yes, i still get sentimental over inanimate things, but that's just who i am.
