Hi Wildabeast! Good to see you. Did you get your Miata?

Apparently I haven't fully accepted that the snopes message board is gone.
A Florida Man thread would be spectacular.

I said before I got it that having a two seater would give me an excuse to not drive when going to lunch with coworkers. In practice I find I'm actually looking for excuses to drive. Like yesterday, five people going to lunch, thus needing 2 cars unless we really squeeze in, and I'm like "This is perfect weather to drive the Miata! I can take one person."

Haha I remember that!

My insurance broker, who is awesome, recommended temporarily excluding my husband from my insurance to keep my rates low because he had an accident a few years ago. Now that we've reached the point where enough time has passed that I could add him back on, I find myself a little reluctant. Nobody drives Ariel but me!
