Today I drove the boys to school because my neighbour was unable. Normally I drive her van (7 passenger) and I am not nervous. I learned to drive in a Dodge Ram (15 passenger). Can you picture a 15-year-old learning to Parallel Park in what some so lovingly call a huderitte mobile.
Anyway, today I drove her dad’s car. A 2005 Toyota Sequoia V8 Limited edition. This time I was nervous. It’s not the size that scares me it’s the cost. Ever since “Luminagate”, I’ve been a little leery of driving other peoples cars. Somehow I managed to enjoy it though. About five minutes into the drive my butt started to get warm and its still tingling at this very moment. Although it costs more than I feel I will ever be able to save for retirement (a whole other post) it sure would be nice to someday have a vehicle that can maintain its own environment.
By that time everything will be standard on the vehicle, or my kids will be laughing at me because the cars they want will drive themselves and maintain temperature.
