Odometric Milestones...

Do you feel a slight twinge of excitement when you notice your odometer rolling over to a large, round number like 50,000 or 100,000, as if it's a significant event?

I do, too. Why? It's really quite meaningless. It's certainly no more significant than any of the other miles rolling over.

I think it's because we have to be somewhat selective in the mileage changes we celebrate. If we got giddy every time the odometer changed, people would think we were fucking nuts.



By the way, I did this post in my underwear.

My odometer was at 6,015 as of 3:15 p.m. this afternoon.

And I rejoiced.

Off topic, Chris, I finally saw This Film is Not Yet Rated and then reread your interview. Excellent work, his and yours! Really intriguing. Put some pants on.

I always imagine you posting in your underwear.

I was so pissed when I missed 15,000 miles the other day. I fume for minutes if I miss any of the five-thousand increments.

Next time you are at a long red light, try doing upside down spelling with your odometer.

"4" = "h"
"5" = "s"
"6" = "g"
etc...
