Ok, why the pictures of cars you ask. Well, I'll tell you. So, the above is basically what I drive...I have a 1998 black Saab convertible but mine has black interior, not the tan in the pic. Trust me, this is necessary to the telling of the story. The weather today was PERFECT. Picture the perfect spring day....I know, I know....it's summer but it was a perfect spring day nonetheless. It was in the low to mid 70s. This is also important to my story and why the pictures of the car I chose have the top down because I did today. I try to take advantage of this weather and put the top down because I LOVE IT. Around 8pm, I decided to go to the supermarket and pick up a few things. I left the top down when I parked the car because it's a safe area and I was only going to be gone for a few. Well, here's the funny part, when I come back from putting the shopping cart away (annoys the SHIT out of me when people just leave them all over the lot), there are 3 girls posing by my car and taking pictures. I didn't even realize it until I startled them when I unlocked my doors with the remote. They giggled and were all kinds of embarrassed. I just smiled and got out of the way and let them take the pics they wanted. Hell, why not...they seemed happy. So, they were saying thank you over and over and still giggling. I found this HILARIOUS. It's not like I drive a Ferarri or a Lotus or some kind of car you NEVER see and is totally HOT. Mind you, my car is fine, I like it, I'm not complaining...I just think it's really funny. I only wish my car wasn't an automatic, I wish it was a stick. This is the first car I have owned that is an automatic and well, I don't love it. It was a good deal and that's why I have it but that's another story. That and I happen to be a car person. I LOVE cars. Went to the car show every year and I loved it. My dream is to have a limited edition Porshe Carerra. Yeah.....I need a sugar daddy! Anyhow, that's my funny story...hope it gives you a little chuckle since it gave me one.
