Let’s just get this out there… I’m like emotionally inept. I’m excited about life and live life to the fullest. However, I lack that gene that makes most people just gushy over… something. That perfect purse. The amazing shoes. The dreamy dude that looked at you the right way. I just lack it.
Falling into the state of swoony is easier for some than others. Some people just fall hard for things that are beautiful and showy. I’ve always thought people who were easily swayed or fell for anything easily… especially vehicles, were foolish.
I’ve never been an obsessive car person… not to say there is anything wrong with that. Actually, I have made fun of my buddies over the years who treat their cars better than their ladies.
I’ve just always been the type of person who felt that if a vehicle gets you to where you are going then it’s perfect.
Actually come to think of it every vehicle I’ve owned was a hand me down from a relative. I didn’t have that desire to seek out a specific vehicle that I dreamed would be mine.
It seemed silly.
Then I met the new Tundra at the L.A. Auto Show and I instantly fell in love. I realized sitting in it that I wanted to take this beauty on every adventure I have dreamed about! It’s my perfect family vehicle for my unique little family. It has the right amount of space, awesome towing capacity and is a camping obsessed woman’s dream.
It is also amazingly comfortable which is very important for my daughter who has joint and inflammation issues that become painful on long car rides.
It takes a lot for me to feel like I really want something. I’m not easily wooed. I’m not materialistic and my happiness doesn’t rest on things I own. I do not fall in love easily with anyone or anything… except for maybe bacon. There was the time I had a bacon donut I knew I would never be the same again.
Dammit I’m in love with the freaking Tundra. He is more reliable and stronger than any dude I’ve met! I’ll be patiently waiting until I can make him mine.
Yeah, this is starting to get weird.
I used to think I was going to be the crazy cat lady but now I’ll just be the crazy truck lady.
