I thought yesterday was busy. TODAY was worse! SO many things on the To Do List.
The car was the priority. After a little dickering and a quick visit to the mechanic, Michael is the proud and happy owner of a new car! [every time I hear those words I can hear them in Don Pardo's voice from Let's Make a Deal, a show I was addicted to as a kid.. A NEW CAR! was said loudly but reverentially... LOL]
I am fighting feelings of SCE -- Serious Car Envy.
Because I am such a horrible photographer I borrowed this image, which is lovely:
It's a luxury car. He has a lot to get used to.Even though it's 11 years old, it looks NEW. I am not kidding.
The trunk is enormous. A mobster would love how many bodies he could get in there.
The sound system is awesome.[No new enormous speaker needed]
The interior is all leather and it looks like it's never been abused at all.
It has OnStar -- something I am only vaguely familiar with but I told Michael he needs to learn..
The driver's seat adjusts back to his preferred position when he gets in and hits a button.
The seats are heated. [not that this is really needed in Georgia..]
The acceleration is smooth -- he doesn't have to stomp the gas pedal.
The feeling is like floating, not like operating heavy machinery. [I used to drive Mom's cadillac on trips and I know the feeling well... :-) ]
I'm sure as he gets accustomed to driving it, I will hear more. Of course, it's not super gas efficient. however, he makes pretty decent tips working at the restaurant so it should take care of gas money needed.
