After complaining to my mom the other day on the phone while carrying a gallon of milk a mile home from the grocery store she made a novel suggestion: "You should buy a scooter!" The more I think about it the more I like the idea. Dave and I had already discussed selling our car before we move overseas. We share the car right now and he drops me off at work. David's friends gave him the advice: "Do it! Before she changes her mind!" It certainly would cut down on my carbon footprint and make my life more efficient.

What do you think? Are scooters too flashy? (#126 on Stuff White People Like)

Or maybe I should just ride my bike more--especially as the weather gets cooler.
