Oh, the power...

The husband and I drive a 2000 Honda Civic named Fray. She is a good, sturdy little car, gets excellent mileage, and meets every need we urbanites have. I do not at all feel the need to trade her in for something bigger, and will certainly admit to feeling a condescending smugness when I see people tooling around in their SUVs, Jeeps, and Hummers.

And yet.

Because Fray is a shared vehicle, when I found myself needing to run an errand for work last week, of course the husband had her at school. So I ended up taking out the shop truck.

The big ol' Chevrolet open-back pick-up truck.

And I must say, there is definitely a certain excitement that comes from gazing down upon everyone else as you cruise down Milwaukee Avenue in your GIANT TRUCK. A little Freudian? Probably. Exciting nonetheless? Definitely.

Quote of the Week

"It's just plain irresponsible to market something as being based on fairy tales if it's not for children!"

What I wish I had said: "I'm sorry, do you have any concept of who the Brothers Grimm were at all?"
