Oh man, after a good 200 trips in the chariot, I had no idea what a thrill it would be to just hang out and chill in the ride. Buckled in is all well and good, but improper is where it’s at.
You know the drill, I’m sure. Your people carry you out to your car, right? Okay, well at any rate, you go out to your car, you get in, you buckle up, you go. Does that sound about right? I’ve done it so many times myself, so there’s no need to be the slightest bit embarrassed about it.
But here’s the thing, before you get buckled in, try just hanging out a bit first take a look at the sites, the sounds, the people, yeah that’s right, even the world. Now I understand how the Pope feels. It’s no wonder he drives the Pope Mobile, he gets to stand up and see what’s really going on.
Before my ride, they do buckle me down like a mental patient, and I’ve always got the paper to read or perhaps Tigger to chew on. But those precious moments before hand, it’s just golden.
For those of you considering buying a car, my advice would be to look for one that you can stand up in, because that’s really where it’s at. If you can’t find one, at least shoot for one that has windows low enough so you can see out them. How different a ride it would be if passengers could see out the windows. Ah to dream.
