Was driving down the road and looked at the spedometer and something caught my eye, my mileage read 208477. I thought it was funny.

Had a boring assembly today. So boring the teachers and principal were falling asleep. One guy behind me says "The day this gets exciting will be the day the world ends." I say, "And I'll still feel fine..." Pretty soon we had three rows of people singing

"It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine..."

Surprisingly we all got out on time at 2:55...

Hey, it's not that new.

HM got it on the mark. Seems like ever since I sent that song in for Song-of-the-Day, everyone's been either singing it, humming it, or "drumming" it on their desks.

208477? That's alot of mileage on the vehicle. It'll be astronomical when you get to 277,480. Only 69,003 more miles to go!

Already passed that mark... our trustworthy family van (1987 Mitsubishi L 300) is past the 125 000 now (or precisely the meter itself reads 200 000 and something km).

Edit: might make the 220380 within the next year
