My new ride is really enjoyable but I really hate the fact that the gas gauge is headed towards empty much quicker than it would have been in my car. A tank of gas would last me an entire week of doing nothing but commuting to work with a stop at the post office twice a week. I started on Monday with a full tank of gas and now I have 53% left.
Yesterday I got stuck in traffic because of a police pursuit and they closed two lanes on one of the freeways I use to come home on. It was a mess. Funny thing the message boards said it was a vehicle fire, but I knew that was BS when I didn’t see any fire equipment. The local news app on my phone had preliminary details about it and then it just vanished. Okay, whatever.
Thinking that I could out smart the man, I paid for a chip for my new ride. I thought it would simply plug into the ODBC connector inside the car, but nope. They want me to cut wires on the air flow sensor and attach their device. They promise it won’t do any damage or void my factory warranty. I just shelled out more money than I have ever spent in my entire life on a car. This gadget might well work fine, but I am not a gambling man.
I went through the on line return through Amazon and this is the first time I had to pay to return something. It’s only $6.95 but it pisses me off. I told Amazon all about it but I don’t know that I will ever get that part of my money back. I’m shipping it back tomorrow from work. I’d rather pay for gas than take a chance and fuck everything up – that would really send me through the roof. No need to take chances. Hopefully, once I break in the new ride the MPG will be more stable.
Since I shelled out money for a Grinder Subscription I figured I might as well use it. I’ve had my eye on a couple guys. I took a chance on a local college kid, he seems to want the same thing as I do and neither of us are interested in hookups. There is a huge age difference and I told him about it up front. I didn’t say how old I am but told him that I was older than he is. Thankfully, I don’t look my age. He was on over the weekend but I sent my message last night. Now he hasn’t signed back on to see it. I keep checking off and on. It would be nice to chat and maybe get a date. Outside of the age difference since he is in college once he graduates he might move away so if things work out it could be short term. However, I have nothing to lose in this situation because I have nothing. Worst case scenario I wasted my time. Next best case scenario we become friends. Best case we hit it off and become boyfriends. I’ll keep you posted. Keep your fingers, eyes, arms, toes, legs and anything else you can cross for good luck. I could sure use it!
Now it’s time to go on clean up patrol for the cats. Poor Marv he’s still got some diarrhea. The vet didn’t call in his script for his IBS so I have to wait another day or two before it will be ready. I want to get him started on that for a couple days, then I will start him back on thyroid medicine, hopefully this situation works out well. He’s on my mind and I can’t help but think about losing him. I know I should be more positive. I don’t want him to be miserable and lose confidence in himself. I want the same happy go lucky pal I have had for the past 13 years.
Winding up Tuesday and preparing for Wednesday. Holy cow!
