My new car, part 3
"Okay, let's not think about what kind of car you want, let's think about what you want the car to have." my husband says patiently.
"Okay." I agree. Finally, I'm getting it, this conversation isn't going away, I might as well be good and get it over with. "I want it to have four wheel drive when I need it, like my mini-van has now."
I start seriously thinking. "I'll be older then, probably much older," I add so he realizes I'm not looking for this new car to show up any time soon. "So I want it to have the back up beeps to warn everyone that I'm backing up. Oh! And I want it to have those big mirrors that show when someone is sneaking up on your left side when you're trying to merge. Stupid jerks." I add for good measure. "I hate people who do that."
"Oh, and I want that thing that automatically parallel parks for you." I'm warming up to the subject now. This is actually kind of fun. Any other husband would wonder at the monster he'd created, but not mine. He's enjoying the ride.
"And air conditioning and heat, with the different zones like my mini-van has now. Oh, and a tv/dvd player." After all, if Nate is waiting in the car for me, he shouldn't be bored. "Oh, and an electric socket so we can bring along a coffee pot, we'd save so much money if we didn't have to buy it from the Quick Mart."
Hmmm, after all that coffee .... "And a private toilet, for after all that coffee. May-be a back seat that folds into a couch, for when we get stuck in traffic, we could pull off and just relax."
"It sounds to me like you want a traveling living room." My husband muses.
And then it became obvious to both of us, my next vehicle will be a RV!
