Oh my gosh!! [Tuesday, Jul. 13, 2004, 7:50 pm]
I had decided not to write about this until it was official, but I suppose it is now. I'll start out by saying, my Grandpa is one of the most generous people I know. Sometimes I even think he's too genenerous - WAY too generous. Why?
He bought me a car. My dad just told me about it on Sunday, I think it was. A guy from the dealership drover it over this evening. It's a light greenish teal color. Not my favorite, but I can't be picky. And guess what? This is the most important part - it has a CD player!!! It's a '92 Ford Taurus. Oh my gosh, I love it.
When I first heard about it, I honestly wasn't all that excited - just shocked. But now that I've been inside it, and tried it out a bit (the actual car, not just the CD player), I really am excited about it. I'm not complaining, but my Grandpa really shouldn't have done it. I guess this is his way of saying, "Come on, you're almost 18 - time to get serious about getting your license."
I never would have believed that I would be the owner of a car, before I turned 18. No way. Maybe it does pay to be the oldest grandchild. And teal isn't really such a bad color, I guess. Oh, I read this really funny e-mail once, called "If women ruled the world". It showed a car dealership, and instead of the cars being organized by make and model, they were organized by color. There was a sign that said "blue cars", and "red cars". Haha, that's just how we are. If I was buying a car, color would be one of the most important factors, no joke.
Anyway, I guess I have no more excuses to not get the rest of my driving hours as quickly as I can. Let's see if I can manage to get my license before classes start. In the meantime, I need to burn myself a mad mix of CD's for it.
I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE A CAR!!
My Grandpa really is one of the most generous people I know.
