I've had a car my whole life, and since I practically lived in it and it normally decided to get flat tyres on the expressways, AND the repairman always thought I knew nothing about automobiles...I have to say your piece has reminded me about those days.
"develops a case of car flu", my first one went this way :(. Guess she was just fixed too many times. I can't say I know the joy of being my own car king, because I don't know how to drive, but the passenger seat is just as exhilarating. I think I'd prefer being driven to driving, to be honest, otherwise I wouldn't have the time to stick my head out the window and drink in the fresh air..(mostly fresh! Do not attempt this during traffic jams!)
It's amusing, but such a very veritable case of what happens when you love your car too much.
Freedom of the road for you always!
Every man's love affair with his auto, too cute. A very timely read also, since my own 17 year old Mercury (near classic!) blew a water hose on me shortly into a 140 mile trip only yesterday. Between the tow job to my own grease monkey Lee, whose name I had almost forgotten in the last year, the hose, coolant, and a brake job which was overdue, there went the $ 400 dollars I made last week but haven't received yet. Thank goodness for credit. At least it's paid for.
Hee hee!!! This is a most amusing and funny poem, and despite all its humor, it is sooooo true!! First, I must say, I am glad that you were not hurt when your tire blew out. I have never experienced that myself, but I have seen it happen to others driving on the road and it is pretty nerve wracking. The car swerves all over the place with rubber flying everywhere. This poem is well written and very entertaining. The one thing about cars that sucks is how expensive they can be. It seems that when a car ages and one thing goes, you know that there are a million other things just waiting to break down and before you know it you are in the middle of a financial crisis with the car. But the last line sums it up perfectly, "she's all mine" Yes indeed. I think it falls into the love/hate relationship category! So nice to see you posting again. Thanks for the laugh with this.
