Spare Parts?

Never in my life did I think I would be required to run 12 miles a week...week after week. Next month I turn 43 and I'm thinking it might be a good time to replace some of my overused parts. How many miles do you put on a car before you have to overhaul the engine? Pa says it depends on what kind of car it is; Ford possibly 200, 000 / Toyota possibly 300, 000...What kind do you think I am, I ask...He thinks I'm a Toyota...and that I only have 125, 000 miles on me so far.

Maybe, I just need a tune up then. A better spark so that I can start up quicker, a better filter so I can filter out those mind pollutants. Why not get an oil change while I'm under...that old oil makes you sluggish. My tires could stand rotating or replacing or retreaded or something. Good grief...I need relief!

Oh, I totally need some new parts. Newer, tighter skin on my face and a replacement for my right shoulder with the arthritis would be a good start!
