We spent some time on Saturday looking at vehicles. Lloyd had a spreadsheet of different types that he’d like to look at before we decide on anything, I had a pocket full of Smarties.
Lloyd wanted me to go along, though I’m not sure why. My only requirements are: 1) the car needs to get great gas mileage and 2) I need to be able to load stuff into it and not worry about hurting it. That means a used hybrid, preferably with a hatchback. We looked at several cars without driving around in them, but most of them were sedan-style with trunks. That’s not really my speed.
In the showrooms, we sat at a couple of desks while Lloyd talked to the teenagers trying to tell us everything about cars. Lloyd did the talking while I worked REALLY hard not to fidget. (I didn’t scream once!) I just looked around at the fixtures and wondered how I could transform each space into my home, as I do in every building I enter. I also wondered how our second salesperson put so much weight on her eyelashes and was still able to look around. So much mascara……
The last place we stopped at had a 2021 Prius. Perfect! Pretty much the same car, except the interior space has less candy storage than ours. We actually did drive that one around, but no decision has been made.
