Well, my Christmas present from the kids is now complete – my auto start has been installed. No more getting all bundled up to go outside to start the car. From here on out it is one push of a button while looking out my front window inside my house…one push of a button and my car will magically start. I think I am in love.
My old auto start was my husband. He would go out on winter mornings and start my car 15-20 minutes before I had to leave. I must say I was missing that nicety this winter. I think the kids were afraid that my longing to go back to the days of warmed-up cars might result in a new husband; as such, they took immediate and drastic measures to address the situation. Now my car warming-up needs are handled with the push of a button…crisis averted.
It makes one wonder what the kids will do if they think their mother is getting lonely and is in need of male companionship…do you suppose there is a button to push for that?
Day five hundred and forty-nine of the new forty – obla di obla da
