My new old car

My parents are buying me a car. It's a white Toyota Camry. Here's my favorite part--it's as old as I am. I'll be squeaking and squawking all over Provo.

My cousin says it's a good little car. She's had it for the past five years. It needs a few repairs, but it's mine. She's saving it for me until I come out there.

I probably shouldn't get excited over a car that burns oil, needs a new windshield, and has a broken speedometer, but I haven't had my own car since high school. I had a '91 Ford Taurus my junior year. It stopped moving after a small engine fire. Next was an '89 Ford Tempo. My best friend sold it to me when her parents bought her a new car, and my brother trashed it when I left for college. The poor car wasn't worth much after it threw a rod.

No longer will I have to plead for rides to the grocery store or Walmart. I can even drive to Salt Lake and back without a problem (I hope). Plus I like the sound of "my car." "Do you need a ride? I drove my car"

That's great, Sara.
And don't worry about us. We're doing fine. If you look at other posts by other people, you'll notice Meghan got married. Chan and Danny had a birthday. (We gave them both Honda Accords because we couldn't quite afford the Lexus.)Ivor broke his neck break dancing, but he's fine. Crystal felt so sorry for him (Oh. she's such a care-taker)that she had a bishop come to the hospital and marry them, so she can take better care of him.(I think she's grounded him from break dancing, but don't tell anyone.) Matthew is scaring us because he wants to follow Dan to Amsterdam to work for "Cha Chao," but we have him chained up in the back room until the Sirens stop singing. Jami and Travis have already packed for Philly, but are too poor to afford rent this month, so they're sleeping on the streets (moving around every night, so the cops don't catch them.) But, . . . don't worry about us; everything is fine.

Okay, so the truth is I'm pathetic.

I miss the Center. I miss reading good writing. I miss the parties. Most of all, I miss the companionship.

Instead of wallowing, I write about a 22-year-old car.

Yep, that's me.

Sky said...

Ha, I laughed out loud. We are ALL pathetic, Girl.
But, ya know, you're just so dang cute also (see picture I posted. The camera really does love you.) And I'm happy you get a car. It is a great blessing.

iBo said...

I'm envious...I want a car. I should sell my soul for a car.

Chan said...

Ivor, let's be realistic, your soul probably has lousy trade-in value. And even if you did manage to exchange your soul for a car, you could never afford gas.

Dan said...

How does one go about selling a soul anyway? Do you have to actually meet with the devil in person, or can you do an online transaction, and if so, what is the website?

Dan said...

Do you think cha cha would know?

Sky said...

Dan! You just asked for Satan's website? Stop it right now. You're scaring me.

Sarachel said...

I love the pictures. Thanks for posting them.

About selling your soul...my cousin knows this guy in California. He's the minister of the Church of Satan. I might be able to put you in touch.

Sarachel said...

does anyone have Anona's email address? I haven't heard from her in a while...

Crystal said...

In high school, I knew a couple guys that would buy your soul for $10. But half the time they didn't have cash, so they'd just give out these paper IOU's. So I kept my soul.
Well, until I traded it for the answer to a game on miniclips.com to a little computer devil icon.

Sky said...

Dan's NOT my hero yet (just to break from all this mush). He's too talented and arrogant. I'm sorry. In a mutual admiration society, I have to be Oscar Wilde.

E. Anona said...

Hi Sara!

My new mature email address is e.a.sobczak@gmail.com.
Email me just to say hi so I have your address and I'll send baby pics in July (27 days and counting).

Chan said...

Sis. Morgan, what are you responding to? Did someone else say that Dan was their hero?

Sky said...

Oh, yeah, sorry. Must be the Novocaine. I'm responding to reading the last four blogs in which someone calls Dan a mentor, idol, Prince Charming, my "hero." It got a little much for me.

Dan said...

Really? I actually didn't think it was enough.

Sky said...

Dan,
Would you knock it off. You've now got Hero worshiping going right along side your Satanic thread. How DO you get them going?

Crystal said...

Sis. Morgan, maybe if you weren't so sleep deprived, Dan would be your hero, too.
Actually, I probably shouldn't have said that, because now you'll have no incentive to go to bed earlier...
