For those of you who follow me on IG and Facebook, the fact that I was rockin' a minivan a few weeks ago isn't brand new information.
My four-wheel drive on my Jeep just up and stopped working. Like so much so that after we got a dusting of snow, I was skidding all over the road. Not good.
Since it was more than a one hour job at the service center, I had to get a rental. Enter minivan.
I was so embarrassed. Sorry to any mamas who have one - there is no shame in your game - it's just not me.
It was between the mini or a Dodge Ram truck, though. What's a girl to do?
I got into my mini and took off for home. I couldn't wait to show Nick.
Seriously I'm driving a minivan.
But then, as I was moving items from my Jeep to the mini, I found myself loving up on some of the features of that bad boy.
Like the fact that I could push a button on the key fob and the doors would open...and shut. I didn't even have to pull on the handle. They just opened. Like that. Wow. That's pretty handy.
And the cup holders? There were six - SIX - in the front console alone. Can you say best roadtripping vehicle eva? Holla.
As I was driving, I looked back and noticed that it had not only one, but two drop down screens. I knew Cruz would go bat shit cray cray when he saw that.
I turned on the radio and it had Sirius. I miss Sirius. We canceled my subscription a while back and this mini was making me miss it.
This thing isn't so bad, I started thinking. Maybe I could be a minivan driver. Maybe this is me. Why have I been such a hater this entire time?
And then I got on the interstate and tried to speed up. Key word: tried. It took like 10 seconds to get to 60mph.
And then I passed a beautiful Mercedes SUV and immediately thought of my new ride. Eh I'm driving a minivan.
At home, I got out and took a look at my mini...nah. I definitely couldn't do it.
The thought that maybe - just maybe - a minivan could be parked in my garage one day, quickly left my mind virtually as soon as it entered.
And I was left to dreaming about the day I would get my Jeep back.
And that my friend is the story about the time I drove a minivan.
