Tomorrow, I’m starting a completely new car activity! Food delivery. No, seriously. When the pandemic started, I was trying to figure out a way I could help people. A friend suggested Meals on Wheels, so I contacted them. Months went by with very little communication. But then a couple weeks ago I had a zoom meeting for orientation. Then last week I got a call that they need a driver for Winters (about 15-20 minutes away). So I’m starting tomorrow. If all goes well, I’ll be doing deliveries on Friday and Tuesday mornings.
What the heck is Meals on Wheels? It’s an organization that provides free meals for seniors in need. We take fully prepared food to their doorstep and also check in on them to make sure they are okay. In the pandemic era, that means I drop off the food and retreat to a safe distance before interacting with them. I’ll be wearing a mask, of course, so I hope they know I’m one of the good guys.
Which car am I driving? While I love the idea of doing meal deliveries in the racecar, the Yaris is over at Mike Meier’s place getting some minor work done. So I’m taking the Elantra GT. It has a huge trunk and has good fuel economy. It’s perfect for the job.
