The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah

From the Mouths of Babes

“Ding!” “Ding!”

My car dinged insistently and “please refuel” lit up as I steered my little carpool toward Hebrew school.

(Doesn’t “Please refuel” sound polite? My car also informs me that the “bootlid is open” when I forget to shut the trunk.)

“What’s that sound?” asked Skyler, a kindergartner, sounding worried.

“Oh, don’t worry about that!” Eva said confidently. “My mom can drive a really long time after that starts beeping.”

All the self-help experts advise to keep your gas tank at least a quarter full. It just makes sense. Clearly I’m in need of a refresher course.
