Driving home, this little muselet came to mind:

Once, I didn't know that people in the United States actually lived, in this day and age, on dirt roads.  Now I live on one.  When the new house is finished, I will live off a dirt road off a dirt road off a dirt road.

Once, I got my mail by leaning out of my front door and opening the mailbox.  Except for cold, the weather never touched me.  Now, I walk to the end of a long driveway to get my mail.  When the new house is done, I will walk down a longer driveway (if I'm lucky) or even out to the main (dirt) road to get my mail.

Funny, the turns life takes, hey?  And you wonder why I'm a work in progress?
