Today is all about YOU!
I know your birthday is not until May, but you have done so many things lately that I am so proud of. In August, you went through a huuuge puddle from a tropical storm. I was worried we wouldn’t make it through, but I should have known better. You’re a survivor. You showed that puddle who was boss, unlike the little white car that succumbed to the water in front of us.
Then in September, there was a bug inside of you and you didn’t freak out. I freaked out, but you stayed calm. You did not even seem to mind my screaming. I don’t know where the bug went, but I am sure you took care of him (read: destroyed him) because you and your 5-star safety rating are my protector.
Even this morning you were there for me. When we were at the stoplight, and a man got out of the car in front of us, and he was holding a sledgehammer – you did not falter. I know that you would have run him over to save me if I had asked you to. The man just hit his own car a couple times, which was weird. You should never have to see vehicular violence like that. Please know that I would never, ever hit you.
When you got a flat tire last week, I was so sad. I realized I haven’t been appreciating you much lately. You are the best car I’ve ever had and I never want to take you for granted! I bought you a gift just to show I care (by “bought,” I mean I asked for a free perfume sample at Elizabeth Arden and they gave it to me). You are going to smell so good. It’s called Pretty which is so befitting for you :)
Have fun with the other cars in the parking lot. I will see you at 5:00.
