Realizations

Things I realized while cleaning out my cars last night in preparation to trade them in for Alistair:

1. My kids were not as clean as I thought they were. They've been out of my life for over 6 months and I'm still dealing with their snotty kleenex and half sucked Jolly Ranchers.

2. So that's where I put those shoes and my favorite pair of khakis! Silly me, I never thought to look in the trunk of the Mustang.

3. Having a friend who will let you borrow her boyfriend for boyfriend-type grunt work such as driving one of your cars to the dealership is a good friend to have.

4. Having said pseudo-boyfriend drive the Mustang Convertible makes it easier to give it up since I didn't get one last ride.

5. I own three umbrellas. I had previously thought it was zero.

6. Naming my new car Alistair Cooper is just as funny as I thought it would be. At least that's what my best friend and boyfriend-on-loan tell me.

So Alistair is home now. I like driving him; it's smurfy. Pics to follow, hopefully in a few days. Also, when you buy a car from MINI, they give you mints. In case you were interested.

Are the mints even visible to the naked human eye?

Ha fucking ha.

To answer your question Heather, the mints are visible of course. However, what they don't tell you at the dealership is that eating them turns you into a doll so that you match your new toy car. I can't get behind that product.

Fine Mary, poke fun, but YOU were the one in the backseat yesterday saying "You can move your seat back more. Even more! You have plenty of room, I'm fine..." In fact everyone who's entered the vehicle has mentioned that it's much bigger than it looks, so go smurf yourself.

Eric said...

Yes, but is there enough room in the back for the really important stuff?

amberance said...

So far that has not been tested. It has, however, been added to "The List".

Just wondering if there will be anything "half sucked" in Alistair?

amberance said...

Half-sucked? Whatever do you mean? Parking in Chicago halfway sucks, but it's not so bad in my neighborhood...

Hmm... I was trying to tag along on Eric's theme and meld in the Jolly Ranchers from item 1. *sigh* Sometimes I just try TOO hard!

But hey, on another note, I am completely addicted to your blog. I couldn't believe it when you mentioned Moeller and St. Ignatius in the same sentence. Amber knows Ohio football!
