I've always wondered how much a car says about the personality of its driver. Obviously, a red sports cars speaks volumes about the driver, as does a fifteen passenger van (sorry Em). I've been wondering lately about the personality of the drivers of Volkswagen Beetles. I think they may hate me.
Wha??? But they're so cute! So colorful! So fun with the whole flower vase in the dash thing! Surely, the drivers must be cute, colorful, and fun too!
I think they may be a part of an evil cult that hates mothers of small children.
Your thinking I've lost my mind.
Did something happen in her long, unintentional break from blogville? Did she finally crack under pressure?
No, I assure you, it's deductive reasoning and I think I can convince you, too. Just read the conversation that took place in the car with my kids. I'm using the word 'conversation' lightly. Very lightly. You'll totally agree.
"CONVERTIBLE GREEN SLUGBUG NO TAG-BACKS!!!"
"Hey! I already got that one!"
"You didn't say convertible so it's mine!"
"THAT'S NOT FAIR!"
"That's the rules! I have 4, you have 3! NA NA NA NA NA!"
"What was that?"
"A slugbug sucker. I sucked up your slugbugs. Now, you don't have any and I have 7."
"Hey...you can't...BAM BAM BAM... HA! That's a slugbug sucker breaker with a magnetic slugbug attachment so now I have all of mine back and yours. VOOOM. Now, I also have a forcefield so you can't take mine again. I win!"
"MMMMOOOOOMMMM! Tee broke my slugbug sucker and took aaalll my slugbugs and now he has a forcefield and won't give me mine baaaack. He needs a consequence!"
Mmm hmm. I thought so.
