So today I was knitting on a sock while I got my car serviced. I also needed a new headlight. I thought I had LED ones and that it wouldn’t be a big deal, or a huge cost, to get it replaced. Wrong! Wrong to da max! My car has HID lights. And just one of them was….are you ready? $300!!! Because it has the ballast already in it or something. I love how bright they are, but sheesh!! I hope the other one doesn’t go out soon. And on our dark country roads, having my headlight back is a good thing.
I used to change my own headlights. Simple. Buy the bulb. Open the hood. Take out the old bulb. Install the new one. Not any more.
But I knit on a sock while I was there and I didn’t have to wait too long; at least my socks don’t cost that much.
