40 mpg

When I filled up my gas tank today, I calculated that the '04 Corolla got 40 mpg on the last tank, which was mostly driving home from Baltimore. Not bad.

People ask me why I have such a "cheap" car since I'm a professional that makes good money. First of all, I'm a tree hugger. Second, I don't need a fast or giant vehicle to compensate for small testicles. Third, I hate cars and I don't take care of them.

I noticed that I crossed 40,000 miles yesterday. Yikes! That's a lot of miles in just two years. And what's particularly weird about that is that in that time, I wasn't working a full-time job about half of it. Granted, it has been to Baltimore three times, Holiday World twice, Chicago once, PKI three four or five times, Columbus probably a dozen. I guess the mileage isn't that weird then.

20ish/year is what I'm throwing down on the Tib. Pretty soon we'll be celebrating the big 100,000.

My 2005 Corolla does about the same. I hate cars, too. But I love Toyota's! They be the best!

"Second, I don't need a fast or giant vehicle to compensate for small testicles."

So your saying your '04 Corolla compensates just fine for your small testies?
