I've always wanted a Hummer. So the other day, I bought one.
I'm not sure what attracted me, maybe it was the sleek, flowing curvaceous lines. (um, no.) Perhaps it's the blazing speed. (no again) Maybe it's just the fact that it will piss a few people off. (hehe!)
I guess I just want to know that, regardless of the weather, the circumstances, etc., I can always hit the road. I can help a few people out of the ditch. I'm up high enough to see everything that's coming my way. Kick it into low, and there are 600+ horses that can pull you through pretty much anything that gets thrown at you.
Nothing can penetrate the armour... you can't even see in, the windows are completely tinted.
I think we choose our vehicles for reasons that aren't always obvious... but if you analyze deeply enough, maybe it makes sense.
And now, for those of you who've waited for one last look at my taillights on the way out... this one's for you.
