Isn't She Cute!!?!?

I am so infatuated with these little things!!! The other day, I saw one being transported on a car hauler, and I made Lowell turn around to go look at it. And today, one passed me on my way home from picking up the kids. I understand the controversy; I know the arguments about how passengers are not very protected in this little box... But they're just so darn cute!!!! :) My kids were a little upset when I expressed how much I like them because, they were quick to point out, they would not fit in this little car. That is a valid point, but I was thinking of this as my "mid-life crisis" car. I don't need a Ferrari or a Mustang convertible, I just want an adorable little smart car to zip around town.
Lowell and I have talked about driving a truck for our semi-retirement (get it - "semi" - We're lame, I know) I'm excited about getting to see the country and explore together while still making a little income. Won't that be fun.. Going from driving an 18 wheeler to this little car?? The best of both worlds! :)

I think they're cute too. Even though I would never get one because they're a kind of pricey, unsafe little box, I still looked at them wistfully when we were living downtown with only one space in the parking garage. It would've been nice to have been able to fit both of our cars in the one spot. Cute to look at though...
