I'm only a stones throw from the car now, although I should point out that I didn't try that in case I hit the wrong car. Anyway: it isn't far and sadly the walk was over.
Talking about cars, , , , the time has just about arrived for me to say goodbye to mine. Am I sad to see it go? Well, not really, I'm just sad that I'll have to go through all the hassle of looking for a new one. Nothing too ostentatious you understand, after all, it's just a means get getting to and from places.
Apart from watching football, I can't think of many things worse than looking at new cars so the conversation at the garage could very well go something like this:-
"Do you need any help there"
"Yes please, I'm looking for a new car"
"Well, you've come to the right place. Did you have anything particular in mind"
"Actually, I quite like the red ones, or blue if you haven't any of those"
"Mmmmmm, what about this one. It's good on fuel, cheap insurance & road tax, , , , and its red"
"Very nice, but do I still put screen wash in the front and petrol in the back"
"Err, yes, that's right sir"
"Okay, I have one of those, but can I just ask one question"
"Will I need to learn to drive again"
"No, , , but why do you ask that"
"You see it's like this, I work in IT and each time we buy new computers everything has changed so we have to learn what to do again. I just wondered if new cars were the same as this and if they were, could I have the downgraded version so I'd already know what I was doing"
