Earlier this week I learned how to buy a car. How did I learn? Mom got a new Honda Fit and I tagged along. I had no idea that so many pieces of paper had to be signed.
Funny thing with mom is, she'll talk about buying a car for ages, but then give very little warning before actually going out and doing the deed. Or anyways, that's how it was this time, and how it was about five years ago with the Honda Element.
Oh yes, the Element...it's one that I loved when I was a passenger. But once I started driving? I guess I still liked it, so long as I was a passenger. I became really resistant to the idea of it because of its blind spots. I guess those might not bother someone who is more experienced, but I liked it less and less the more I practiced in it. (Wait, what did I just say there...?)
After mom finished signing lots of paperwork we drove off in her new "blueberry" colored car. (I have never seen a blueberry that color, and I hope I never do.) Just blocks from the car dealer, mom commented, "I'm sure you're antsy to drive this. Well, you can't, because I have class this evening."
That probably sounded better in her head.
