Milestone For The Big Blue Max

I told you it would happen!

I kept waiting for the transmission to blow out or some maniac doing 100+ mph in the rain and traffic to take me out in the last mile, leaving it forever stuck on 199,999 miles – but nothing like that happened.

It was uneventful, except for possibly the trivial and inconsequential coincidence that it happened EXACTLY in front of my office, which happens to sit right next to the freeway. That was a tiny bit weird and random.

On to the next 100,000 miles! She may be neither small nor zippy (like Hissy is) but she’s reliable and reasonably comfortable. And we’ve been through a lot together.


Which brings up another point. I know that my kids name their cars and give them personalities because I do and in that sense I’m either an outstanding, super cool role model or a terrible, psychotic one. But does anyone else do this?

  1. Congratulations Big Blue Max!!

    Naming the car may be related to either age or the number of cars you’ve had. My first three cars had names. Since then… no. Not even the first hybrid, which was sufficiently rare at the time to just be called Prius. I do talk to them, though.

  2. It’s hard to witness the rollover of a digital odometer because you have to take your eyes off the road.
