Worst car in the lot!

I wouldn't say that I am a very proud person. I am also not very vane or materialistic. There comes a time, however, when a person realizes that they truly, literally, with out a doubt, by far, have the worst car in the lot. I had to be in 3 not so nice neighborhoods as of late, driving the Camry. My car.... the worst on/in each and every road, parking ramp, and lot.

The other night, I had the Camry. It was the only car I could drive. I parked down the block to "hide" this piece, so no one could see it, then proceeded to leave the lights on. At the show, some neighbor called to see if anyone at the party had a red car!! When I was driving home from the show, the car started to smoke.....BADLY. At a particularly long light, I looked like I was in a Cheech and Chong car. It was totally in smoke. The car in front of me was pulling forward, the girl next to me was large eyed and panicked and pointing. Me....just sitting there trying to shrink in my seat like Fred Flintstone.

I know God is reminding me that I need not become vane at this time. That I need to be grateful. Well, I am. I actually am. Just a bit embarrassed, but I'll get over it. K~

Oh, Kirsten. I once drove a 1970 mostly green Ford Fairlane station wagon that jerked violently to the left whenever I hit the brakes. I feel your pain, sister.
