Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without

Obviously there's all sorts of glib bullshit answers I could throw in here. I could live without disease and cruelty and liars and global warming.
How about something that I *like* that I definitely could live without?

I could definitely live without a car.

That sounds totally weird, especially when you consider how recently I bought a car, and the fact that I don't live in a big city, or even a medium sized city, or even just SOMEWHERE with reliable public transportation.

Howevah.

I live like 45 seconds from work and mostly I don't drive during the week anyways.
I take Gabriel to school on the bus.
I go to work on the bus.
Hey!
I have a bus pass.

I have the car because of the trips I have to take to Sacramento to pick Gabriel up from his dad's house.
And yeah, it's easier for doctor's appointments, going to my parents' house, lazy mornings, grocery shopping, et cetera.

But really, if not for the INTERMINABLE DRIVING TO SACRAMENTO, when my car died? I just wouldn't have a car now.

And that would be okay.
