On the minus side4, I've fallen in love with the Smart Car. They get ridiculously good mileage (they run on diesel), are surprisingly safe for their size, would be super easy to park and, despite how small they look from the outside, they do have enough storage space for my hockey equipment (which is my one and only requirement for a car, truth be told). And they are so damn cute! Anyone out there in blogland have any opinions about the Smart Car?
Oh ya, while we were looking at the cars, I noticed an odd item listed as one of the features of a particular car5:
... tethers for children?

3Sasha is the second person from our softball team to have their car stolen this summer. Car theives suck.
4I say the "minus" side because it's a lot of money and I know that if I buy a car, I'll have less cash to do fun things. It would suck to buy a car on the premise that it fits my hockey gear, but then not be able to afford to play hockey!
5My apologies for the crappiness of this photo. It's always on the one day that I don't bring my camera with me that I end up having something I want to take a photo of! So I used my camera phone which is, clearly, not ideal. I also took a picture of a drive-through liquor store (only in the 'burbs, man, only in the 'burbs), but it came out so fuzzy you can't even tell what it is, so I'm not bothering to post it).
