You guys, I left my heart in a Dodge Durango.
It probably slipped into one of those nifty cup-holders, or maybe the sleek middle console. I don’t know. The point is I found a dream car.
I’m not a car person. Never have been. I remember back in high school my friends would get a shiny Mustang, or cute new Hondas for their birthdays. Meanwhile, I cruised around in my Chevy Astro van and scoffed at such a ludicrous waste of money. I was such a hipster. Only back then it wasn’t cool.
Fast forward 10 years and here I am: wishing I had a ludicrous amount of money sitting around. Because now? It wouldn’t be a waste. Oh heck no. I would employ that money to buy my dream car. A Dodge Durango.
I was invited to go test drive a Dodge. No big deal, I thought to myself. It will be a classic “look, but don’t touch” experience. Wrong. I can’t be sure if it was when I started the car with the push of a button, or if it was when the video camera allowed me to park perfectly (for the first time ever).
Not sure. Between those two events I certainly fell in love.
So what did I love? Besides the nifty start button? Well, I loved that I was driving a car that could accommodate seven people and yet it still had a sun roof.
I also thought it was super-fun to be large and in charge. I’m used to being the pip-squeak on the road. If I’m honest I’ll tell you that it was a bit of an ego boost to be riding so high ????
While I played it safe by not bringing my kids, I think they would have loved the experience, too.
I’ve often dreamed of a world where my children are separated by a middle console. If you have more than one child you’ll know what I’m talking about. My kids are always in each other’s business. They’re swiping food, wrestling, tickling, hitting, and harassing.
Ugh. Well, this car has three rows of seats and you can use them however you desire. The possibilities are endless. It also has a Blu-RayTM Entertainment Center. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!! We don’t have a Blu-Ray anything in our house. Sheesh.
I didn’t want to give this baby up. Unfortunately, I was only asked to test drive it…not take it home. So now I’m dealing with my deflated ego and burning car lust. Burning lust. For a car. Not a burning car.
I’m not giving away a car, you guys. If I was, I would rig it so that it would end up with me. However, I am giving away some gas money. Who couldn’t use that, right? So if you want a $100 Shell gift card, answer me this: What would YOU do with all the space that the Dodge Durango affords?
