Pimp My Ride

I am at a loss to explain exactly how my parents came into possession of their truck and why my mom drives it when she comes down to visit us. (I was going to say "comes down to visit me," but let's be honest - she comes to see Ellie.) Anyway, Mom took Ellie to school today in my car, so I drove to work in my dad's red Chevy S10 with a low ride, hard topper on the back, blacked out windows, and tricked out muffler, blaring NPR as I whipped into the parking lot. Hilarious. It's even funnier with my mom, who couldn't look less the part, and my dad, the mostly bald, portly, 60-year-old minister.

The NPR really is the icing on the cake, I think.

Hey, we're all kids inside, eh?

Is that you in front of the truck, Sarahlynn? :)

Found your blog by accident but I gotta tell you as a 54 year old, overweight, mom with a new black truck with all the goodies - it's the bomb - and I don't care what anybody else thinks about it. I'm having a ball!
