If my body was a car this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I’ve got bumps and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little bit dull. But that’s not the worst of it. My headlights are out of focus and it’s especially hard to see things up close. My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things, even in the best of weather.
It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed and my fuel rate burns inefficiently. But here’s the worst of it: Almost every time I sneeze or cough or splutter, either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires! 🙂
