always be prepared

Me: We're selling our cars. If you know anyone who wants to buy a Honda Civic or a Honda Pilot, let me know.

My mother: WHY are you selling your cars?

Me: Because we're moving to NYC, remember?

Mother: I know that. I just thought you'd want to keep one car.

Me: No one has cars in the city. You take the subway or walk.

Mother: Well, I would want a car.

Me: It costs around $800/month just to park a car in the city.

Mother: And? I would still want to keep a car.

Me: That's a tad pricey. I am not keeping a car. Why would you want a car?

Mother: In case I wanted to escape.

I found your blog via your jewelry site, and have been interested in your upcoming move to the big city! First of all, I think you and your family will love living there! Second of all if you want or need to escape, there is Zipcar, which I recommend. (check it out: zipcar.com). Totally convenient.
btw, I left NYC for London just a year and 1/2 ago and hardly a day goes by that I don't miss it!
