New Year
New Hopes
New Goals

I had high hopes for this year, but 13 days in and things aren't going great.  I have a long list of car problems, the top of which is just that the darn car embarrasses us at the worst possible moments.  I need a new car. Maybe not need, but strongly desire.  I saw an Audi the other day.  It's my new dream car.  Here it is:

I took my car into the shop the other day.  In an effort to both impress and finagle a discount, I joyfully left a Taylor Swift CD in the player for the mechanics to enjoy while fixing the car.  Surprisingly, the radio was powered off when I picked up the car.  Do mechanics not enjoy the soulful singing of Taylor Swift as much as I thought they did?  Inconceivable!

I was also denied my expected complimentary car wash.  Not really all that surprising as cold as it was at the time.  But, the following day I received a text asking me to respond to rate my service.  I texted them back immediately, emphasizing my disappointment with a frowny face.  I seriously hope someone received that text and at the very least smiled.
I've decided that my new years resolution is to increase my use of emoticons.  Especially in complaint texts.  So far, they seem to be very effective.  I'm starting a movement.  Get ready, people!

  1. The new year is always an opportunity to make changes in one’s life, and build new goals to make life much better. It’s too bad that you didn’t have a great start with all your car problems. But January is only the beginning. Who knows, the remaining months may have something big in store for you! A new car perhaps. And with regard to the emoticon, it seems to be effective. Maybe I should try that sometime. Haha!
