so I finally took the time to change the air filter on my car. The old one was in tough shape, no sunlight passing through and gunk on the back side. The box where it was placed had tree seeds in the bottom probably picked up by the cool air intake in the wheel well earlier in spring. The whole thing needed to be vacuumed and a new filter installed. I presumed the car breathed a lot easier when it was done.
Sometime soon it would be good for me to go to confession, for roughly the same reasons.
