Last December I bought a Mazda. I have always been a Ford person, but my Taurus croaked and my daughter found me a Mazda at the right price. My cars always look as though I expect to be homeless any day. I do keep clothes for changing if I spill food or drink on what I wear out of the house. I am prepared for long waits in traffic, the kind that cause traffic to sit for hours and hours. Books for tutoring help me if I get a last minute call to tutor SAT, ACT or just about anything.
I always have drink containers I call my security blankets. A couple of weeks ago I grabbed a cup of flavored tea from Panera. I placed that cup in a cup holder slot. I’ve tried to be careful about doing that. A few weeks ago I finally managed to upend a Panera cup into the driver’s seat. Every drop of that tea made its way to the seat and tried to soak in. Ms Over-prepared had paper towels and ragged towels to soak up the mess.I let it dry while I had a working supper with Melba Moon. After supper I replaced the wet towels with dry ones and snagged dry cushions from the back seat. The car has been officially baptized! It’s truly mine.
