Sent the car in for the 15,000-mile service (actual odometer reading was 15,525 miles) this morning. The 15,000-mile service apparently takes longer than the 10,000-mile and 5,000-mile services, so I got a loaner. This time, the loaner is a Scion xB. What an unusual vehicle. Not sure how to describe it. Its length is like a compact car but it is filled out to a box-like shape so there's plenty of headroom. (I wonder if xB stands for eXtra boxy. :) ) It's somewhat underpowered so it struggled to get up that last steep incline before home. Also, I kept forgetting to step on the gas a little more to compensate and wondered why I was tooling along at 30mph on the highway. (probably not a good thing on Route 17!) However, I bet it would be great for city driving and tight parking spaces. The speedometer is in the center. I didn't know where the odometer was until I realized that it was that small LCD number next to the clock.
Since I had a little time this morning, I went to the bank to get a bunch of bills bigger than ones. I got a $20 bill stamped with Where's George. Cool. I guess this one could be a Where's Andy. :)
:1. Have you ever ridden a camel?
No, not even the Sopwith kind.2. When you are outside, what does the horizon look like?
Depends on where I am. Along the shore, it would be flat and ocean-like. Otherwise, there are probably trees or buildings blocking the view. Or there could be mountains in the distance.3. Who is the last person to leave you a message?
No one can do that. I don't have an answering machine.4. How many hours did you sleep last night?
6 hours.5. Chocolate: take it or leave it?
