More Money Flies out the Window on Wretched Little Wings

This morning, I knew I had to register the car in Minnesota or suffer the consequences; my tags are up on 9/1. So I went online to check what I needed and where to go and went there.

Of course I got lost. The internet didn’t tell me the DMV was located on the second floor of a huge Sears building, so I drove right past. I figured there’d be a sign, ya know: DMV HERE with big-ass arrows pointing to it.

In the heart of downtown, gawking at the great architecture and sculptures, I parked and started walking, soon realizing I was lost. I accosted two pretty girls and asked for directions. They were happy to help me.

After another aborted attempt, I finally got on the right street and, because I was looking for it, finally saw a tiny sign beside the road that announced the DMV was in the Sears building on the second floor.

I parked, went up, took a number, and lucked out; they blew through the five numbers ahead of me and it was my turn. I left ten minutes later and $150 poorer.

So let’s add this month’s expenses up, not counting gas and food and car payment and utilities, shall we?

$150 for car registration

$420 for new glasses because the old ones broke.

$560 for car insurance in my new state.

If anyone still wonders why I canceled my trip south, wonder no more! Now excuse me while I google plasma centers and found out how much they’ll pay me for my blood.

    no offense, but what kinda glasses are they? made of GOLD? i used to wear glasses also, but they never cost me more than 100 and a bit Euros.
    now i wear only contacts.

    and poor you! with the car and everything.
    and blood? try sperm bank.

    • LOL Sperm bank. Never occurred to me.

      I had to avoid road construction today; they’re building a new light rail. I wonder how much that will cost as opposed to maintaining a car in St Paul?

    Hi you, I finally made the connection between Theo the blogger and Fen the other person…doh! Thanks for reading/responding to my Gaelic blog. Did you make it over to The Man in Romance? I like your blog today, kind of a poor man’s Odyssey. Very poor….Great how blogsites allow all of us to kind of philosophize and internalize all the while talking to possibly billions. Slán, Erin
