I wonder if the men and women who put the pretty white Nissan Maxima together ever thought about the future drivers. Cecily will be driver number 3. I wonder about the previous drivers myself. Did they love this car or was it just a convenience?
I tend to get very attached to things I use daily for years. It was very difficult for me the day I traded my Ford Taurus for the Ford Windstar I drive now (and not just because I was trading into a minivan and kissing my days of driving a fun car goodbye!). I felt like I was abandoning the Taurus. What if her next owner didn’t appreciate her? What if they didn’t take good care of her? Never mind that the “good care” I can manage is cleaning out the junk on the floor (used kleenex, mapquest directions, candy wrappers) once every couple of months.
I think Cecily might feel this way about her first car, pondering it’s past, it’s previous owners, it’s history, all the events it’s been a part of.
Then again she could just have the one thought I had at 16 when she looks at it – FREEDOM!
My pink cowl continues toward completion. Rudy models it for you here. I really like this Noro Shirikaba yarn, it’s 42% silk, 40% cotton, and 18% wool. It’s super soft and the vibrant color is gorgeous!
