It Feels Good
It was just my dream car and I after a year of checking various dealerships online I finally found one I could afford with excellent mileage. My old car was getting all old and creaky and needing lots of work and so I just went out and bought this for myself today:
Except mine is green like my old one. I am quite fond of green cars.
(Cripes, the car in the photo looks yards longer and bigger than the one in my driveway right now! Mine is older and smaller)
I'm not kidding about my old car. My muffler literally FELL OFF when I was on my way to the dealership. It fell off, people. I drove the last thirty miles blowing down the highway like a road hog. I probably lost some of my hearing.
Man, there is NOTHING like buying yourself a car with your own damn money.
Or rather, paying some cash down and financing a car with your own damn credit and money.
Ten years ago I had a stinky lying cheating and did I mention lying? dirty rotten bastid of a boyfriend who bought himself a red CR-V. I loved it and he said, "When we get married I'll buy you your own."
So of course I, like a fool, thought that was possible. And for years afterward when I saw a CR-V I would say to myself, "I'll never have one."
So I would like to say to that lying stinkin' no good lying cheating old boyfriend, "I GOT ONE FOR MYSELF, THANK YOU VERY MUCH."
P.S. Love and kisses to the guys at Herb Chambers Honda Dealership for not being horrible, over-bearing smarmy car salesmen and for just being charming and honest and not trying to tell me I don't know my old car's blue book value and all that sort of thing like they always did to me at other car dealerships. I know it helped that I was very cute when I walked in and started calling all of you "Herb," but you were terrific anyway. I actually enjoyed buying this car, and under usual circumstances I would rather gouge out my eyes with a sharp stick than go into a car dealership. Plus I know my old car was pretty broken with a muffler hanging off it and all, so you were cool to give me a really awesome buyback price for it. Thanks, Herb.
