I'm driving the minivan tonight!

We did some shuffling of cars, so the van spent the night at my work and we both came in this morning in Al. Rather than hopping out, throwing all her stuff into the minivan and then driving to work, she said "since I'm driving farther tonight, why don't I just keep this one?" So while I have to suffer through minivan mileage tonight and my next Honda tank is going to suffer because she doesn't get the mileage I do, the family is burning less gas than if we kept our "own" cars for the day.

What's even better than that? She sees it as a personal defeat that she doesn't get as good mileage in the Fit as I do.
