September 03, 2009

I was posed the question late yesterday: "MINI-E, or Dodge Ram?"

My inner dude immediately answered for me, "I'll take the Ram." A little surprised at my snap answer, I realized I had started pretty early that morning so I could run a few errands before I headed home for the day. Yeah, I headed to the Home Depot.
