New Rule #5: Never Test Drive a Car in Rush Hour

The past two days have been a whirlwind.

Medical tests, work, then on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6-9 I am taking classes in Adobe In Design. My eyes were crossing by the end of the night.

Thankfully, after exhausting myself, I slept a solid six hours.

I must be slowly getting better, at least my cold is, as I found my sense of humor returning. I actually laughed a few times today, much to the relief of my students and co-workers.

I screwed up an appointment today, and found myself with an extra hour or so of free time, so I stopped by the Honda dealership and test drove a top of the line Civic, and an Accord Coupe.

My salesman has been a friend for 30 years, and I totally trust him. He gave me the keys, and told me to take them out in the highway and on some of the windy roads to see how they drive. I went home to pick up Larry to join me, and we had a blast except that we got behind every SLOW driver out on a nice spring evening sightseeing, or there was lots of rush hour traffic, and I barely got to test the cars ability to accelerate and handle back roads at moderate speeds.

I did enjoy inhaling the black leather, playing with the heated seats (as I say there is nothing like a hot ass...) and playing with the satellite radio and electric seats.

I told John I will return to test drive the Sedan AND the the two seater convertible...and I know he will oblige me. If I can't afford a convertible, then perhaps I can make a hobby out of test driving various makes and models around New York State. Just the thought of it makes me grin.

Off to bed...till the next installment.

Hello darling. Long time no speak. I hope you feel better soon. I have been worried about you. Though, I know you are a tough cookie and I am sure everything will be fine! We should have an R&F date again soon (before the workshops start). I had such a great time with you there and would love to go back! Talk to you soon.
