A Morning Conversation, BC (before cappuccino)
Timothy: Top Gear is, like, my favorite show. Both the American and the British one. I want a Lamborghini. Or maybe a Bentley. Do you know how fast a dragster goes? Well, it's like 220 miles an hour, or something. A Bugatti is cool, too. Let me see your iPhone and I'll show you a picture.
Me: Look. No more talking about cars. Between football and cars ... talk about other things.
Timothy: You just say that because you don't like cars. What kind of cars do you like, anyway?
Me: Smart Cars, Fiats, and Mini Coopers.
Timothy is speechless. How uncool could his mom be?
Me: Oh, and I also like vintage Vespas.
Timothy sighs. He has a lot of work to do to catch me up to speed.
NOTE: All these photos of smart cars were taken by yours truly when we were in Italy three years ago. It became a game. When we got home Timothy and I made a poster of all the Smart Cars we saw on our trip. Also note the last one ... a Red Cross Smart Car.
