I drove my white corvette to work today - I was loving it, driving along, both hands on the wheel, knuckles white as I am dealing with being petrified that I'm gonna hit a bump or a tree or a car that I'm making myself a bit sick - but - I still love it.
I did have a particular thought jump out of the inner workings of my mind as I was cruising down Third Avenue this morning - how dissappointing for people to see this beautiful car, admiring the curves and the way it hugs the road and then seeing me, the quintessential "fat girl" behind the wheel.
I guess it could be worse - I could be an overly tanned, under-sexed, balding middle-aged man, holding on to my youth like a stick shift and straddling an engine that sputtered out years before the purchase of the vehicle in question.
'Cause, ya know, that would totally suck - and stuff...
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
ps - How come you can eat with your fingers, but licking them in public after a messy treat of ice cream is considered rude???
