My $50 run!


Wednesday, September 04, 2013

It happens. It was the day after a holiday weekend. We were running around getting ready for our mini-vacation. My car was having a catastrophic failure. Our day was chaotic. My guy had parked his car on the WRONG side of the street. We were walking back from my car's mechanic when we saw the meter maid turning onto our street and realized what was happening.
Normally this would be one of those "oh, well. Lesson learned. We'll never do that again" moments. It would be a $50 ticket - ouch!
But this is THE NEW NORMAL! I ran. I sprinted a block. I beat the meter maid. I saved us $50!
Woo Hoo!

    Now that's what I call a NSV. That's why we do all this exercise.........to be functional in the world. You just put the "fun" in functional. I would have loved to have seen the look on the meter maid's face!!!!
Woo Hoo to you, Aurlie!
