C is for...car!
What was your first car? Mine was a little red Fiesta, about 13 years old. I loved that car. it wasn't anything special, it had no fancy buttons or swanky interior but it was my freedom. I could go anywhere, whenever I wanted to. It made it much easier to visit friends, to head to the pool, even just getting to and from my old work. I loved driving along winding country roads at night on the way home from University, pitch black roads with only the stars and other headlights for light.
This one time, a cow stuck it's head out of a bush...I've never screamed so loud in my life. Another time, a baby rabbit hopped out right in-front of the car - that scream was almost just as loud!
I didn't like driving on motorways, and I never reverse parked. In the winter it would be colder inside the car than it was outside - I once had to scrape actual icicles off the inside of the car. Yes, I had furry dice on my rear view mirror - instead of spots they had little Mickey heads, and my favouirte album to drive along to was The Ultimate Dirty Dancing soundtrack. I once left my lights on and killed the battery - I had to stand in a foot of snow dressed as Mrs.Clause whilst my dad came and jump started my car.
I sold the car over a year ago as it just wasn't getting used enough - I really regret that now. I miss that little motor! Right now, it's not really worth me buying a new car but watch this space, you never know!
Until next time,
