69,982.8 miles

So. I got a letter from my car insurance company asking me to write down the mileage on my car and the estimated miles I expected to drive in a year. It seemed to be a very important letter because it stated that if I didn't send the sheet in within thirty days they could (or would) raise my rates!

So not wanting that, I quickly enter the garage, open my car door and look at the mileage.

It reads: 70,000 miles.

No kidding.

Not a mile more. Not a mile less.

So I walk back into the kitchen from the garage and return to the sheet.

I think for a minute before writing anything down.

And then I write: my mileage: 69,982.8

. . . because I was worried they would think I was lying if I wrote down the truth.
