Guess What I'm Thinking
by Pa Rock
Yesterday I received my annual car tags dun from the state of Arizona. Actually, if a certain Arizona car dealership had any sense of honor, I would not have received the aforementioned dun for another year. But when I purchased the automobile last year part of our purchase agreement was that they would tag it. I had been away from Arizona for a couple of years and had forgotten that cars here can be tagged for two years – an oversight that the slick salesman took advantage of. He also delivered the car without floor mats or a remote key – along with only one standard key.
My only other clear memory of the car salesman on that scorchingly hot August afternoon was that he was free and easy with the Jesus talk. I’m sure there is a special room in Hell for car salesmen, but those who have practiced their craft in Arizona will probably enter it with a sigh of relief.
But back to the tag renewal story: I managed to get the state mandatory emissions testing after work yesterday and still make it to the office where the tag renewals take place. Both are conveniently located within a few miles of where I work. When confronted by the one-year-or-two question by the clerk in the licensing office, I chose the one-year option.
Can you guess by that bold move what lifestyle change I am contemplating in the next year? I’m beginning to burn a few bridges!
