today is the day...

i dropped my car off at the dealer this morning.. the technician pulled it into the expansive garage and got out and said, "Wow, that engine is LOUD.. i hope it's just because there is no oil in it.. do you hear that knocking (and he knocks on the counter top for emphasis) when you hit the gas and ease off the brake?"

then he said the words i didn't want to hear... "it might be time to get a new car if something is really mechanically wrong with the engine".

i know that they are supposed to say that cause they are a dealer.. but the car has been loud for longer than i can even remember.. i don't think it has much to do with the oil. :(

i'm bracing myself for the worst. but i did spy a sweet new accord while i was there and my heart skipped a beat!
