I pulled into the parking lot and immediately saw where I HAD to park.
Yep, spotted a twin-mobile, so I parked right next to it. Make other shoppers think there's a fancy car show going on.
Really, my 2000 Toyota Echo is such a puttster, I do get mildly excited when I see another rare gem. As I left the two of them snuggled together, I checked the other license plate. The registration had expired in May.
I checked out of curiosity because Magnum had a sudden epiphany a few mornings ago: our car registration expired at the end of July. Sure enough, our other car - Honda Fit - is past due.
Why is it that seemingly every piece of crap junk mail follows when a person moves, but important things like MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION RENEWAL NOTICES don't?!
Curious, I checked the Echo. Expires, well, tomorrow. And alas, "my" other car, which Meego uses, expired in June. We're criminals!
Our county requires emission tests, so I took both the Echo and the Fit and alerted Meego to take the Civic. Thankfully, they all passed. I'll mention that the employees at the test center were super friendly and efficient. Seriously, I wondered what substance they were on?
Speaking of tests, the College Board administered its first SAT test since pre-Covid yesterday. Not a big blip in news headlines, but big in the land of tutors and high school seniors. Many test centers cancelled, and only a few "chosen ones" were able to take their tests.
Ugh, I feel for these kids (two of my tutees were cancelled). Most don't know until the last minute whether they'll be able to take the test or not. So many unknowns. Panic abounds. I lurk around the SAT and ACT subreddits and the anxiety is palpable. I do appreciate good meme efforts, though.
