Today I had to help his older lady. I had to drive to her house and pick her up. When I saw her I thought that she was about 45. Then when I had to look at her drivers license I realized she was actually 71. I was so shocked.
She was dressed in the same style of clothes that I would wear to work. She had a hot pink blouse with a blazer. And her shoes were the cutest. They were hot pink sandals that she said were in style when she was my age. Her toe nails were also painted. I sure hope I look like her when I am 71.
She was on her way to a dinner meeting. Seems like she has a busy life. I picked her up at her house and she lives at the country club. The drive there alone was beautiful. As I was getting to her house I saw the sun set against the lake.
I think a lot about my life. I know I won't be in my twenties for much longer. The years will pass me by in a heartbeat. But seeing her gave me hope that I can still be very active and look good when I get to be that age.
My day at work today was pretty much relaxed. I drove brand new cars off the lot today. Yesterday I also drove the 2006 Lincoln Towncar off the lot. It was brand spanking new and covered with plastic. Gotta love that new car smell.
I like the fact that I get to drive brand new cars. I am learning more about cars and the different features. My latest favorite model is the Dodge Magnum. I used to think that the VW Passat or the Jetta were good cars until I actually test drove them. German engineering my ass.
You see, I love the commercials. I love the design. I love the new car smell that seems to linger around for a while. But when you actually drive it, you don't feel very much power. I feel like I have to slam on the pedals to feel any power. And then comes the maintenance costs. Parts are way too expensive. I was told that the dealer doesn't repair parts. They completely replace them. I have had a lot of customers complain about their VWs after the warranty expires.
Anyways, that is my two cents for the day.
