Dude, what´s in your car?

I don´t carry a handbag. My car is my handbag. (When I´m away from my car – my coat is my handbag.)

A dear friend of mine says about her own car: “Jenny! My car is so full of trash my kids and I could survive for weeks if we got stuck in it”

My family would stand the same chances of surviving. Once a friend of Viola found a flat packages in our car, she held it up , saying
Look a pressed flower” Viola took one look at it and said:
No, that´s actually a burger“.

I cleaned out my car the other day. Here are a few items I found:
Lots of leftover snacks. Most of them   All of them unhealthy. (Who I´m I kidding?)
Nail polish. – I always do my nails in the car before taking off. I shout “Fan#!#” when I realize I´v forgotten to fasten my seat belt.
Toys from fast food places. Hair spray (gold) Sticks and stones. A purse with cash (in case I pass a garage sale) Measuring tool ( in case I pass a garage sale)
Sunglasses. Rotten fruit. Medicine and yes that is a urine sample container. And a sugar beet.

Some people wouldn’t  trust a person with a urine sample in their car. Well I don´t trust a person with a clean car. All the alarms go off in my head when I smell that “new car smell” or when I feel I should check the soles of my shoes for dirt before getting in. Or if there is a special bin/bag for trash. Or even worse a “no eating” restriction.

To all my friends with those spotless cars. – Don´t worry- I still love you- but I know you´r all lunatics.

Min svärfar har sytt överdrag till sina bilsäten!!! Och varje gång han kör i en grop eller gupp säger han “Aaaaajajajajajaj” med sån inlevelse att en tror att det är pungen som slår i, inte stötdämparna. Och jag dör lite inombords varje gång.

Haha Fia!

Ja man kan bli galen.
Jag hade stora problem med att vår bil alltid var så skruttig när jag var barn. Alla mina kompisar hade posh bilar. Mina föräldrar har aldig sett ett värde i det, utan alltid kört bilar i den lägre prisklassen. De har haft bil för kunna ta sig runt och för att lasta grejer.

Å, vad skönt att höra att du litar på mig Jenny! för du kan lita på att det nästan aldrig är speciellt rent och snyggt i våran lilla blåa skrotiga “kärra”. TRE exakt likadana sådana där små freesbees i TRE olika glada pastelliga färger ligger på golvet där bak. Hm, kan det betyda att vi i våran familj också äter så där nyttigt tros? Vansinnigt kul det där förresten med Viola, vännen och den “pressade blomman”! :)

Idag blängde jag lite på den där texten i bakrutan igen – fast det är klart att jag gör ändå – Love My Toyota!
