I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I sold my old car to my grandson over the summer. It wasn’t ancient, but was almost 20 years old. I was afraid something would go wrong after he bought it even though I never had any problems with it. It was a dependable car but after so many years, all of the safety features were out-of-date – especially the air bags which would have crushed me if they deployed. Modern air bags are made to detect the size (short) of the driver and thus are not as dangerous.
Anyway, I hadn’t heard much about how the car was working out until I saw my family on Thanksgiving. Then I heard that my grandson’s new car was the talk of the school where he attends. He doesn’t go to a local school, so he has to drive himself (and thus his parents purchased him this car).
When my daughter attended parent’s night, the teacher said: “Oh, he’s the one with THE CAR!” It turned out that my grandson’s “new” car is the talk of his school-mates. His car has windows that can be closed even when the car is turned off because it has “roll-up handles”! And, equally as impressive – his car has “the drawer”. I looked at my daughter and asked “What drawer?” Oh, that would be what we used to call the “ashtray”!
