Twelve years ago Lori acquired a new Toyota Prius and put 137,000 miles on it over years of mostly trouble-free use. She has traded it in for a new Audi A3. It’s bolder, sportier, and much more fun (much like Lori). Of course Lori does bold and sporty in a careful and responsible manner so this is not an outlandish impulsive leap. You can bet she’s factored in speeding-ticket fines in the total cost of ownership.
Congratulations to Lori on her wonderful new (belated) retirement present to herself.
