One Way to Achieve Those Coveted Racing Stripes

This weekend I ripped the driver's side mirror off my car. (Which I predicted I would do when we moved in.) However, instead of hitting the side of the garage as I expected, I removed my car mirror using the minivan.
On the bright side, I found a replacement mirror at a salvage yard for $80. The service station guy said he can install it for about $70, which is significantly cheaper than the $350-$400 the Honda dealership quoted me.

If you're keeping score at home, you may recall that I also ran a red light recently. This puts the pricetag for my Dumbassery: Vehicle Edition at over $300 in the last 23 days.

Congratulations! This is quite an accomplishment (the Vehicle Edition price tag, that is). It could've been much worse!

Ha! I have to laugh. I rubbed our minivan up against Brian's fine german automobile the other day while backing out of the garage. Love messing up both cars in one strike.
