A NEW CAR!!!!!
Imagine me actin' a foo, screaming like a banshee, and huggin' up on a sun-baked Bob Barker. Cuz that's pretty much what it was like the day they handed me the keys to OUR NEW CAR.
I talked the hubster man into "just looking" with me a few Saturdays back. We'd been talking about trading in my beloved Exploder for quite some time, but never ventured as far as stopping at any dealerships to see what was out there. Why? Because "just looking" sorta, kinda, totally turned into "just buying", and before you know it we were driving off in our semi-brand new set of wheels. It's a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, and by far the newest car that I have ever owned. Hyundai. Pronounced Hun-day according to my smarty pants husband. Not Hi-oon-die like I kept saying at the car dealership. And have kept saying since the day I drove away like I stole it. PS-I didn't!
We recently took our new, little Hi-oon-die out for a few glamour shots. You know, for her baby book. So she'll have something to look back at when remembering her younger years. I thought they turned out quite nicely. But I will let you decide. Buckle up and take a little spin with us, will ya?
Of course we just had to visit Dick, to show him my new ride. He was super impressed, and even let Hi-oon-die pose for a picture in front of his big Dick Edwards sign. I thought that was super nice of him. Dick is a class act.
From Dick's it was off to...wherever this was. I am not really sure. But I thought the Hi-oon-die looked pretty snazzy parking her prettiness next to this spot too. Strike a pose. Vogue.
And finally we drove her straight through a giant game of checkers. We apologized, but insisted it was a must have photo, because once again, she completely looked hot sizzle here too. King me!
What can I say? Hi-oon-die doesn't take a bad picture.
Even her backside photographs well.
Another little side note about my little Hi-oon-die. She came fully equipped with all wheel drive (a Minnesota must have), a full bumper to bumper 100,000 mile warranty (smart choice for us), AND (wait for it) three months of free XM Radio!!! You know how I love me some free. This is no exception. My trips to and from work, and everywhere in between and beyond have become 200 percent more awesome. I am particularily fond of the all 90's station. It's funny how these songs can instantly take you back. And how I still remember almost every lyric of almost every song. Or every fake lyric. Yeah. I am pretty notorious for making up my own words to songs.
Case in point:
"Don't go chasing waterfalls. Please stick to the quivers and lakes that you're used to."
Quivers? Really? Yeah. I have no answer for that. Sorry.
Tonight Jesse and I were rockin' out some sweet 90s cuts. Well I was rockin'. Jesse was grabbing the "Oh Sh!t" handle and praying his last living memory wouldn't be of me belting out an Alanis Morrisette song. All was good. I was totally still paying attention to the road, and even dedicated this song to him, with me at lead vocals naturally.
Listen to it. If you are a child of the 90's this will totally take you back. Who doesn't remember singing this song and feeling completely like it spoke of your current love affair. Well for me it spoke of a fake love affair. But now it's totally a real one, and it reminds me totally of Jesse and I. And so I told him as much while I took a brief vocal break.
The love anthem ended, I shed a tear (seriously), and this song followed it. And then Jesse said, "This song reminds me of you."
This song is completely not PG, or even PG-13. It's totally rated R. And I don't know what was more shocking: that this song makes him think of me, or how well Jesse knew it. Like seriously, you're a white boy from the suburbs. Exactly who do you think you are anyway? Fo' sheezy mah neezy.
So there you have it. Clearly me and my
OUR NEW CAR!!!!!
How about you? Did you recently buy a new car too? Do you have XM Radio and sometimes hang out in your car like me just so you can listen to it? Just me? How about those Bob Barker snapshots? Totally brought me back to my daycare days. Thanks to my daycare mom, Judy, I don't think I missed an episode of the Price Is Right, or Young and the Restless from birth to kindergarten.◦
