Contrast

I wash my car once a year or so, whether it needs it or not. OK, sometimes it's more often, but I'm just not sensitized to the cleanliness or lack thereof of the exterior of my car--it takes someone writing "wash me" on it, or getting a specially good set of cat footprints (up the hood, across the roof, slide marks on the windshield on the descent, then back across the hood), or something similar for me to notice that the car is really dirty.

Or there's contrast. When I wait at the car dealer's for my car to be brought around after being serviced, and my eye gets accustomed to all the clean (and new, but I'm not very sensitive to that either, thank heavens) vehicles, and then mine rounds the corner.

I'm headed to the car wash in the morning.
