Fun with the go cart

I mentioned in this post that I was given a Kia Rio to drive while the van is in the shop getting fixed. I hate to admit this, but it's kind of fun to drive, in that go cart kind of way. I sit so low to the ground that its hard to get in and out of, but I'm adapting. What's really fun is driving it down the road.

People pass me all the time, it's a Kia...of course they pass me. When I press the gas it sounds like the engine is gargling. Contagion does a great impression of the sound it makes! I suppose I should get used to driving this type of vehicle, because my dear husband told me he's going to buy me a Geo Metro and put bubble wrap all around it. I told him I want a car made from Rubbermaid!

Hopefully I'll get the van back tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed because I NEED it back by Monday at the latest.

My Mom got a car like that as a temporary replacement a few years ago.... Dad called it "The Pimple". :)

No, you need a car with a one foot thick layer of the stuff they make superballs out of.

You get hit, fly away, Contagion drives down to southern Indiana to pick you up and hose the vomit out of the car while Clone yells "Again! Again !"

That's how I feel when I drive *any* type of car. Like I am sitting on the ground and am gonna get squished any minute!

And Grau -- Ha! :)
