Really important things

like cars.

We'll need a new one because in a few months we won't all be able to smoosh into the minivan any longer. Whaddaya think? A burb? But those drink soooo much gas and thirst for more. And NO I will NOT be caught driving one of those excruciatingly large vans that seat 500. The minivan was hard enough on my ego.

Speaking of cars, I realize that I have a problem. I've named it vehicular profiling. I categorize people according to the cars that they drive. When I met Husband, he drove a Malibu. Perfect, I thought. It seated four, wasn't flashy, screamed stability, and was always spotless.

Other examples:

  • BMW (any model) = so self propelled that they will step on others to reach the top
  • Honda Odyssey = a bit snobbish but at least they aren't driving the beamer anymore (I want one of these, by the way, and have never even driven a bmw. But I did have a crush on a boy in middle school who's initials were bmw. Get your mind outta the gutter.).
  • Ford Focus = young, likes new things and buys them even though they can't afford them, also enjoys speed
  • Acura Integra = spends a lot of time on being good looking but has bad intentions
  • Old Beat Up Pick Up Trucks = now that's just hot. I have no idea why but it's true.
  • Volkswagen Jetta or Gulf = in between two places: childhood and adulthood
  • Scion: Pa-leeze.

I can't think of anymore models right now... All I can hear is Mr. P sniffing. I think that he may have a cocaine problem. He sniffs and sniffs even though there is nothing there and when I tell him to stop, he does... just like that. It's a new bad habit that only occurs when he's bored.

I betcha that those kids at his school hooked him up.

See?
Really important things.

What would a VW bug convertible or a Ford Expedition mean?

I drive a red focus - 2 me it says "Too cramped for a 5 year old and often a 1 year old nephew in the back" But Rocky bought it and pays for it, so I can't complain. (too much) Now he wants me to get a mini van. I'm with ya on the mini van thing. Unless he plans on giving me more babies soon, one child at 26 does not a mini van driver make.

Angie,

HAHAHAHA! (imagine that that laugh sounded like me imitating an evil laugh)

Welcome to the I-hate-minivans-but-I -drive-one-anyways-club! Or maybe not. Maybe you'll get a ginormous ford explorer and you'll splash me as you speed on by (looking WAY cuter than myself).
