at long last, the teal mobile is no longer. I thought about fixing it up, but the bus has been treating me well, so I sold the carcass for cheap to someone who might be able to give it yet another life. I’ll miss the inherent freedom of an extra car, but I definitely wont miss features such as: driver-side window didnt go down, the stupid automatic (and messed up) seatbelts, the broken seats (necessitating milk crates), the lack of mirrors (1/2 was my own doing) and of course the beauty marks all over it. yet somehow I was fond of the old dead bumblebee in the back window, and of course the Lilt sticker in the window. so the kids and I waved goodbye, and I’ll continue to ride the bus, for now at least. once again, many thanks to Andy and Katie and families for passing it on.
