Yes.... I'm a dork.
Without even looking, I blasted out of my garage and scraped the side of my sister in law's car. Sooooo sorry Jenny. I could care less about the damage I caused to our car. The scrapes actually blend in! My car is such an Arapaho racer. For those of you who do not know what an Arapaho racer is... it's a car that looks like crap, drives like crap, and runs like crap. I grew up near an Indian reservation and one of the tribes out there was the Arapaho tribe. (there seemed to be a lot of those cars out there) Well anyway, I forgot to tell my mom that I hit Jenny's car, so I'm pretty sure once she reads this, I'll be getting a call. Mom, just to let you know... No they are not mad, no they are not making us pay for fixing their car (they also have an Arapaho racer), and yes, I'm a dork.
Even though our car is quite the looker, it doesn't even touch how bad our last car was. Steve bought it from a friend to actually make it into a "demolition derby car"! Well, we fell on some hard times and made it the family sedan. It was possessed! You heard me right.... it was possessed! We couldn't run the radio, because the volume would increase by itself, and wouldn't stop. There was no a.c. and near the end, the heat was going also. The thing actually had 210,000 miles on it! We probably put on about 1000 miles. Where did these people drive to? The electric windows wouldn't work, so when we were at a drive through, we had to open the car door. The driver's side seat was broke and I pushed the gas pedal with my tippy toes. And then there's the blinker.... When we wanted to turn left, or was it right...., the thing wouldn't blink. It would just shine a constant light. So we actually had to move the blinker wand thingy back and forth, so that it looked like our blinker was blinking. Click click, click click, click click. And did I mention, no cup holders! So pathetic.
We are now in the process of saving up for a new car. So hopefully in the near future you will see me driving around the hood with the windows down, stereo pumping "Popcorn Popping" and the wind blowing in my hair!
