It’s crazy how Illinois allows Currency Exchanges to handle car licensing and titles. They took a quick look at my title, told me to cough up $280, then boom, plates, title (in a few weeks), and registration for a car that isn’t even here.

Meanwhile, Laura’s previous owner told me that her left front tyre is kinda bad and he’d recommend changing it before the drive home. I fetched this full size steel spare out of Tucker, weighed it, and determined that despite the short distance, shipping costs are kinda stupid. So I’m bringing it as checked baggage.

Bonus: Reallllllly, Steve?
