Oh, pshaw. You can totally develop a dependency on prescription drugs.

(I think I was the only teenager in the 1980s to “just say ‘no’,” per Nancy Reagan’s advice.) Now it’s probably too late to develop anything other than a really unattractive alcohol dependency.

Susan, I thought about the Chevy Volt, or a plug-in bubble car, but my car was seriously circling the drain, and I knew I probably couldn’t hold out until there was a reasonably priced used Volt, or whatever. (Plus, I’ve had GM cars forever. Time for a change. They’ve been extremely reliable and maintenance-free cars, though, I must say.)

We always get used cars. We’re cheap. What can I say?

On second thought, it may be made by them terrible illegals, so be careful not to take above item with you to Arizona.

We can fret a bit less about your commute up-mountain now when the snow starts flying out there. Can you really get aftermarket gullwings put on a car, or is this just a “Transformers” [R] kind of a reverie? Talk about generations!
