30 Day Challenge: Day 1 – A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.

Me at work.  I look too serious.
Today was a pretty good day.  I can’t complain.  I went to work, did my thing and went home.  The only thing I did slightly different was go to get an oil change during lunch. Just as I’m sure other adults do, I run errands during my lunch hour sometimes.  

When I pulled up to the Jiffy Lube the attendant asked me, “Regular or synthetic?”. 
My brain was stumped.  Of course I do not know anything about cars.  So I asked “What’s the difference?”. 
He basically told me there is no difference other than what I pay.  I know I should really know this already at my age, but I really didn’t think about it before. I just went by price.
As much as I appreciate him trying to save me some money, I really didn’t believe him, nor any mechanic as a matter of fact.  I always feel butt raped when I leave any place related to cars.  Therefore, I looked it up and it turns out there is a difference.  Eventually, I told them I wanted the synthetic blend (I was still being cheap).
So if you are curious about the difference.  Supposedly synthetic will last longer, and give you better performance.  You can get more information at the link below: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/synthetic-conventional-motor-oil.htm
