*sob*When my last car was about to hit 200,000 miles I called my dad so that he could be on the phone with me when it hit 200,000. It didn't happen on that call. It didn't happen on the next call either. It took three calls at strange hours of the night and morning (those last 5 miles were a bitch), but he gleefully joined me on the phone as I drew closer with each mile.
so, so lovely, and awesome.
