We have been a one car family for much too long. This means that my in laws have been a one car less family as I’ve been borrowing my FIL’s monster Ford truck. I’m sorta embarrassed when I think about how long I drove the thing. And I’m grateful that they don’t mind being somewhat of a car rental facility. So thank you FIL and MIL.
And now I’ll say that I didn’t really enjoy commuting in the truck.
Its huge. Its a bit of a beast. I had to grunt to get out of my driveway and usually ended up touring the weeds on the other side of the road as its turning radius is somewhat lacking for my road. I felt a bit like a terror in parking lots.
And then, Wesley got me this little number.
But back to my current Green Thing. It came complete with bumper stickers declaring world peace and grow fresh grow local. As a Forrester, it still is as nerdy as ever. But I seriously just float down the highway. I feel like I have wings when I pull out of my driveway. The road rises to meet me as I cruise along. I love it.
Perspective is a beautiful thing.
