MY android phone costs me $12.73 a month. I can text, email, read the news, read a book, watch porn or even make a phone call...but who actually makes phone calls anymore?

OK, Boomers do.

You really want to know what modern tech I think about giving up even more?
My 2007 Prius hybrid, that's what!

I bought it back in 2012 when I was still putting in between 50 and 200 miles round trip every day. Now, thanks to my bad eyesight and hearing, I am pretty much a "retired" film editor and a "retired" DP, so it's a shock if I put more than 250 miles a MONTH on that car, and by the way, that use profile is HORRIBLE for a Prius, especially for the HV traction battery.

I just don't need that car anymore and it's about as fun to drive as a Roomba, or it would be if I was a cat. It's not even AS fun as riding on a Roomba.
And I just know my sparse use profile is killing the hybrid battery anyway.

I'd be happy with a little scooter or some ancient used mini-pickup or some old heap for my little trips back and forth to the grocery and hardware store.
We have Karen's van for serious long trips.

Trade it in and get a used Leaf. They are no-gas plug-ins that can go about 120 miles on a new battery. If you get an old one, they have less range. But plenty for your needs. They are cheap. I see 2011 and 2012 Leafs going for about what you can get for your 2007 Prius.

I've been considering it but I think once again, since I don't do any regular commutes, it's probably more than I need.
All I really need is to get to the supermarket and the drug store.
That's like maybe two or three miles away.
I am betting a nice scooter would fit the bill fine. We have perfect scooter weather most of the time.

Oh by the way!!
I did peak at just shy of 250 pounds but as of this morning, yours truly is weighing in at 208.
In the next thirty days I shall be under 200 pounds. I think I will even venture a number next week.
I would very much like to hit 185 but I will be satisfied with 190.
