We forgot to work carpooling into the marriage vows

The gas station we passed on the way home from Benjamin’s basketball game must have inspired the question.

“Dad, when people get their car fixed, why do they always walk home after?”

“We only see that because of the garage that is right down the street from us,” I answered. “Most people have to get a ride, rent a car, or get a loaner car. You’ve seen Mom and I do that. We’ll both drive to the dealership to drop off one of the cars, and then we give each other a ride home.”

“That’s one of the good things about getting married,” he said without skipping a beat. “You can give each other rides.”

Can’t argue with that.
