I discovered it is never too late for an adventure!
Aging is no barrier since there are surprising opportunities to experience new, wonderful and uplifting feelings that can leave a person dreaming in anticipation.
I suspect you are eagerly awaiting the details.
Bill and I bought a car.
That was fun, but not the dreamy exciting adventure in question.
We purchased a 2013 used car (with a lot of techie he-man gadgets). This car is old but new to us.
But no, that was not the adventure either.
To further explain this story it should be known that the new-old car is now Bill’s and I have inherited our 2006 old-oldie.
Certainly not the stuff of dreams huh?
But just as an aside, surely my giving up the new car will put me on your
list of sacrificing, saintly humans who give more than they receive.
To further qualify this story and to fill you in on the adventure,
It must be remembered that anything Bill touches gets kind of messy – meaning dusty and used-up looking (excluding Me of course).
Anyway, the brand New Used Car is now Bill’s to mess up,
and the Old Used Car is solely and exclusively MINE!
And the Old Used Car has been “detailed.”
AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS THE ADVENTURE!
I am beyond excited!
I have never had such work done before but I now have an old car that
- looks like new,
- buffed to a high shine,
- no dust,
- no pebbles
- and no mud on the floor boards,
- everything organized in the glove compartments,
- ancient papers discarded and only the most up to date easily accessible,
- bugs off the windshield and anywhere else they have collected,
- leftover food from feeding the critters at Safari Park vacuumed out of the window wells, and
- in other words, untouched by you-know-who!
O.K., I didn’t really expect them to organize my papers – or did I? That is a “detail” isn’t it?
I was beside myself with anticipation – like a young girl looking for a new dress to prepare for the prom, I kept imagining things.
Will I love it?
Will it look as good as I think it will?
Will the world see how beautiful it is?
Talk about an adventure! I know it’s not like rock climbing or skiing or even trampoline jumbing.
But WoooHooooo! Did you ever think of DETAILING an old car as an adventure?
