Mom's Mid-Life Crisis Car

Mom says the new car is her "mid-life crisis car". Dad says that if that's the case, then he got off easy. Once again, I have no idea what they are talking about. Bunny friends, you may have noticed that Beans are a little crazy. This is just another example.

Anyway, I decided to try the new one out, to see if it was any easier to drive. After all, Mom did say that it was Automatic. Should be easy, right?

NOT! This sure isn't what I call automatic. Way too many buttons, and the steering wheel and pedals are still too far apart.

My Sister wasn't much help with this one, either. I thought she was supposed to be smart, what with that Master's degree she just got. She said driving is not my occupation, so her OT degree couldn't help me.

I think I'm done with cars. I have no idea why Beans spend so much time in them. I'm going to stick to closet navigation. Or even old-fashioned litterbox driving. At least the box has hay, right?

Karen's Note: It's only a Ford Focus, and the basic model at that. But it's the first new car that I've had since 1987. And even though it's not the important part of the car, I feel very lucky that I was able to get such a pretty one. The color is called Candy Apple Blue. The only thing better would be a blue and green paisley with black accents, and a honeydew  houndstooth interior. Or black and fuschia zebra stripes, with a black-and-white polka dot interior. Until they start painting cars with patterns, this will do. And, Weasley still has to ride in his carrier when he's going to the vet. He's a terrible driver.

Congrats on the new car! I tend to have "new to me" cars, which are usually in pretty good shape thanks to my dealer. Hubby and I have talked about getting a new car in the near future, but much will depend on The Boy's college expenses.

Very nice! Very, very nice! Congratulations to you on the car and Weasley's sister on her degree!

And, Weasley, leave the driving to the humans. You can sit in the back seat like a proper gentleman and be driven everywhere. :)
