It was a big car-maintenance morning for the Hagan household. This morning we all departed at the same time. Andrew and Kai went off to the Mazda Dealer for a regular X-mile check-in (aka, lets keep those warranties valid, kids!). Isaac and I headed to the Firestone dealership, where we get all our non-Mazda needs met due to the 6-months same as cash credit card we have with them. Love that sucker – makes those car repairs feel a bit easier to weather, and since we’ve had the card for approximately a million years, they keep throwing fun coupons and promo deals at us. My oil change cost $18 today after all the perks – and I can pay it off at a rate of $3 a month if I so desire, same as cash.
ANYWAY. I digress from the point of this story which is that Isaac is lookin’ slick, apparently. We were on main street in Danbury, heading to the Firestone,waiting at a stoplight, when I hear Isaac say, “hello! hello there!” from the backseat.
I glance back, and he’s waving at the car next to us. In that car, are two giggly tween-age girls, waving at *him*. When they notice that I notice them they break out into even more giggles.
Their car pulled ahead of ours first – and one of the girls blows a kiss back at Isaac!
“Isaac,” I say, “I guess you’re looking good, kid.”
“Bagel!” he says. His reward for being calm, quiet, and non-pinchy in the Firestone is we stop at Dunkin Donuts after.
“Bagel.” I agree.
Also in the looking slick department…check out the new blog! Oooo-Oooooh, am I right? I’ve been blogging since 2006, and so to celebrate a decade of putting my personal details on this here world wide web for the world to read (which isn’t strange at ALL and seems kind of quaint now that we have the faceypages and twitter et al), we’ve upgraded our look. I’m still playing with formatting, but so far, I’m liking wordpress a lot.
