i’ve finally washed the car!
i guess there is a limit to sloth. mine, anyway. the dirtiness of the car finally reached the threshold, i suppose, so up came the bucket, cloth, and glass wipe thingy (you know, the one with the rubber wipe, whatsit called?). now the car’s shiny again! though i didn’t bother doing it too thoroughly so there’re still a few solid specks here and there, but ah heck, they’d be accompanied by others soon enough anyway.
