In My Car...I'll Do The Drivin'....

Once upon a time there was a family who owned a mini-van, a Mazda and a Honda. Then a 15 year old boy with a learner's permit wrecked the Mazda ...his dad bought an old blue Honda to replace it. The family rotated vehicles; the van went to the college student, the Honda went to the mother, and the old Honda went to the dad.
One rainy night, the work-weary dad began driving home in his old, blue Honda. It leaked; his shoulder was wet from the rain seeping in. But he didn't mind; it got pretty good gas mileage and he knew that his girls were driving the nicer vehicles that hopefully would not break down.
Suddenly, as he began to enter the freeway on-ramp, he heard a loud clunk and the old blue Honda drew it's last breath.
A tow-truck and 2 hours later he arrived home.
The family had two options: drive to Logan to retrieve the van and leave the starving college student sans wheels, or go car shopping.
Now the lucky mother of the family is the proud owner of a 2006 Toyota Camry...complete with heinous car payment. The dad has his beloved red Honda back; he feels like the king he is and will no longer get wet when driving in the rain! The college student can still drive to Sonic for drinks when she needs them....and they all lived happily ever after.
((Thank you Oxford Learning Source/Academy for employing me so I can pay for the car!))

Congratulations on a new car. We think we can't afford a car payment but somehow it is paid. Drive carefully :o)
