Hey guys, sorry for another late post! It’s been another crazy day, I’m back in Vermont for a doctors appointment and family gathering this weekend. I spent the whole day jumping from train to train en route to Albany and I spent the whole time thinking about how much easier it would be to just drive, mostly just because I was lugging behind a huge bag. It’s a bit strange for because for for as long as I’ve been alive my parents have been a two car family, and as my sister and I began to drive, a four car family. I know that seems very excessive but living in Vermont where winters are snowy and freezing and public transportation is extremely limited, it really was a necessity. Anyway, on Friday I will officially be returning my car to the Mazda dealership and saying so long. It has me feeling a bit sad because, even though ill rarely be driving, it’s a nice thing to know you have as an option If you need a quick escape or something. But then again, since I’ve been away from the house I’ve barely thought twice about driving at all. Hopefully in the next year I won’t forget how.
What do you guys think? If you never needed a car, do you ever wish that you had the convenience of just throwing your bags in the back and taking off? Or, if you’ve had a car for a while, would you feel bitter sweet about giving it up? Part of it could also be that I was always the kid who would anthropomorphize things like cars and think of them as an extension of our family. The headlights look like eyes, right?
