Magical Thinking, Part Umpteen

I got my car my car inspected today; I put the new plates on over the weekend. I could almost swear that it’s running better.

While that’s obviously ridiculous, it does seem quite plausible that now that the various legal requirements are out of the way, I’m worrying less about how the car is running. If so, then it’s definitely true that my average impression of how it’s doing has improved.
