I can’t say I have been up to much.
I worked out 5 times last week if I include my long lazy stroll around Yorkdale. On Saturday, I decided to tag along with my Dad and brother to the mall. My Dad parked in some new underground parking lot where they had lights above the spots to tell you if the spot was available. Like a kid from the country I was in awe. What a great idea.
My grandchildren are going to have life way too easy. Cars that park themselves. I was watching the news last night and they were talking about how no one is learning to drive manual transmission anymore. *crying loudly* I may never buy a new car since I only drive standard cars. When Diva was little she used to tell anyone that would listen that her mother couldn’t drive automatic. It was the cutest thing.
I haven’t been to Yorkdale in years. I used to refer to it as “the rich people mall” and given my recent visit I may have to rename it the “super rich people mall”. There are a lot of designer brand name stores. My Dad told me stories of previous trips where he found a plain t-shirt with a $525 price tag. Good grief.
In the mall my Dad took me to his favourite stores, including the Tesla “store”.
I must say it’s a first for me to see a car dealership in a mall.
Tesla is a brand of electric cars. There is no engine in this car so there is lots of empty space under the hood and the trunk. Starting at $78,000+ this is not a budget friendly car. In the store the salesgirl tried her best to convince us of the value of this car. How much we would save on gas and insurance PLUS there is a government rebate of $7500+ to offset the purchase price.
Now where did I put my winning lottery ticket?
