It's that time of year again.
It's been that time all month but yet I have not managed to find the motivation to do it.
I need to run my car to a smog check so that they can perform 10 minutes of "work" to give me a piece of paper telling me that it's cool for me to pay the government money to send me a sticker to place on my license plate. I'm cool with the smog check but I think the registration fees every bloody year are a bit much. I preferred the system in PA where you had to get your car inspected every year to make sure that many different components were working properly and not just the smog. In fact, I could drive out here with faulty breaks, bad headlights, a missing door and a multitude of other problems but as long as my car passes the smog check no one gives a flying fun. I guess in the end it's all just a money racket.
Looking at the mail that I received nearly a month ago I notice the phrase:
Maybe I've put off going long enough. My goal will be to remember to do this after work today so that I can at least have the piece of paper in my glove box telling me all is good in case someone decides to pull me over.
