One More Car in the World

Sigh.... It's disturbing to me that I'm excited about this. I've been carless for about a month. The girl-child works in a town about 40 miles away and has to *gasp* dress up for work. The mind reels. How did I end up with a glamorous child??? Well, be that as it may, she couldn't ride a bike to work dressed like that. So, she's been using my car. I've tried to be graceful about this situation. I don't even LIKE cars, and I'm trying to drive less, anyway.

But yesterday, she bought a car.

It's a Toyota Yaris and it's European-car-tiny. It gets great gas mileage and I GET TO USE MY OWN CAR. I'm so excited.

Pathetic, that's me.

As a penance for being relieved about this, I'm organizing the Bike Club's Reindeer Ride. I'm apparently pathetic in very many ways today!!

So cute! It reminds me of a baby version of my Matrix.

It IS a baby Matrix.

It cracks me up that as small as my car is, they make a minature version of it.
