Dad’s Car is Shrinking!


 My dad has a VW, thats Volkswagen TDI Sportwagen. He likes it a lot. He likes it because he hardly ever has to put gas, er…Diesel into it, plus it handles great and he can still get it with a manual transmission. My dad says, “automatics—–Blah.”

  Anyway, I have found a serious design flaw with the car. As I get older the car seems to get smaller. Maybe because he got it wet? Maybe because he lets it out in the sun? Maybe a manufacturing defect? Those crazy Germans, maybe it is designed to also drink Red Bull….hmmm Red Bull paint job just like their F1 Team! naaaah, my dad will never go for it. He roots for Ferrari.

I remember when I was able to ride in the front seat; with my mom! Then It got to be only in the back but I could roam around. I could go close to the front in the back, or I could go to the “way back”, all the way by the rear hatch.  NOW I am lucky just to be able to lean down to get my head out the window……….and my but almost sticks out the other side!

Ah but riding in cars. One of life’s great joys. You head out in the onrushing fresh air, feeling the breeze, smelling all there is to smell, ears flapping like your wings. It is like you’re flying, but better ’cause you’re not high up’

And in the end you end up somewhere else!

Life Lesson: Stay off the phone! Use your directional signals! Stay out of the left lane unless you are passing someone! If you’re turning stay to the edge of the lane so other cars can get around you! Don’t almsot stop in the middle of turning ..accelerate and TURN! If oyu are lost and not sure where you are going, pull over and figure it out!
