We currently have the van plus 3 smaller cars: the Mustang (angels sing each time I say the word, even if it’s 2/3 owned by Deanna and Kaitlyn), the Kia, and a Trunk. We bought the Trunk to replace the Kia because we expect it to be more reliable and gas efficient, but we had to park it until we could do some needed repairs. In the meantime Perry drove the Kia to work most days, treating himself to the Mustang occasionally.
Every morning, little Bethany heard him refer to one of the cars: “Go get in the Kia,” or “Let’s take the Mustang today,” or “Put my bag in the trunk.”
She’s a sharp cookie. She knew which one was the Kia and which one was the Mustang. Therefore she deduced that the little green car on the far side of the driveway must be The Trunk.
Oh – and one more thing about the Mustang. You should see Parker grin and do a fist pump every time he says the word, “Mustang!” Leg room may be a little tight in the back seat, but he doesn’t mind. His legs are only 13″ long.
