Car phone home

  • (Phone rings)
  • Me: "Hello?"
  • My car: "Hi. It's me"
  • Me: "Hey! Where are you?"
  • My car: "Dunno, think I'm on a train for Baltimore."
  • My scooter: "Tell him my battery's almost dead.."
  • My car: "Scooter says Hi"
  • Me: "It's been 3 months, when you coming home?"
  • My car: "Thought I'd take in an Orioles game, you know. See how it goes after that."
  • Me: "I'm cancelling your insurance."
  • My car: "I'll be right there"

It's now 3 months since I turned over my household possessions, car and scooter to the packing company. Latest delivery news: It's all heading to Baltimore and should arrive next Monday.  So if there's no other problems, I may see everything sometime next week.

After being overseas and moving to Virginia, I knew I'd need to get a new driver license for operating the car and scooter.  My old Iowa license hadn't expired yet, but VA DMV requires residents to get a VA license.  It's odd, but I still didn't think of Virginia as my new home location when I bought my house.  I think after all the years of renting and moving around I just thought of it as another rental, with a bigger monthly payment and no landlord.  But after getting my license it's clear I'm a Virginia resident now.
