The hubs and I carpool together to work but the last two weeks we’ve had to drive separate cars because he was working on a special project. I’m glad the project is now over so he can start driving me around again.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind driving. I actually kinda sorta like driving. What I don’t like is driving in rush hour traffic because the roads we have don’t have the capacity to handle the thousands of vehicles that drive them every day.
We live in an outlying town, with no mass transit, so in looking for a commuter car you’d think we’d find something that’s fuel efficient at highway speeds. Nope. Not a chance. Why? Because it’s all stop and go, and stop and go, and stop and go. We’re on the highway, one little blip amid a mass of humanity creeping at slow city speeds, until finally we get to work.
So we got a car that’s fuel efficient at city speeds. And it’s a baby car.
It’s so small that we can park it behind the big mama car in the driveway.
(Psst. Did you know if we water the Baby car, it will grow up to be just like the Mama Car?)
It makes me think of how a mama pachyderm leads her baby.
Anyway, I don’t like driving the Baby car because I feel like I’m driving a toy. And it’s loud from the road noise. And every time I hit a bump, it seems to jump around so I feel like I don’t have much control.
Hubs, here are the keys. I hope there’s no more special projects in the near future.
What about you? How do you get to work? Do you drive? Do you take mass transit? Tell me! I’d love to hear from you.
