no, no. not a minivan. nothing against minivan's or their drivers. some of my favorite people drive a minivan. i grew up in a minivan. but, i have never thought of myself as a minivan driver. for one, i only have one kid. so i don't have the need for one. for two, i'm not ready. mentally, i'm just not there yet. just like, i am still holding on to my skinny jeans. i can't quite fit in to them anymore (who said i ever could?), but i am clinging to them with all the desperation of "one day" and hoping that, miraculously, they will make me skinny again.
we decided to look around at some cars. joel wanted the nissan leaf. ok, i'm down with that. zero emissions, no gas, plug in. wait. crap on a stick. we don't have a garage, which means....no outlet. ok, so, we aren't going to save the planet. at least not in the next 6 months or so.
we talk about some cars. decide we might want a ford, maybe another hybrid? so we head over to the lot, "just to look". and there. it. is.
let the haggling begin! i won't bore you with all the details. but we got it and are happy. and that's what matters. and i give bella credit for that, for wooing all the salesmen. the girl's a charmer.
mmmmmmm.....gotta love that new car smell.
