Our 16 year-old Rav4 had 220,000 miles, and was still running strong, but the clutch was finally showing signs of wear so we decided to look into a new car.
We wanted to go electric, so we surveyed the current state of the technology, keeping in mind we only have one car and so it had to cover all of our needs.
You basically have three choices of electric vehicles today…
Uck. Slippery snakes. Eweeee. I hear you.
Snakes aren’t sexy unless you’re born under the Chinese sign of the snake. Then you might be very, very sexy. Let’s not forget the snake is the universal symbol of sexuality.
Ghosts. Are you a believer? Either you are or you aren’t. Everyone has an opinion.
Ghost stories are said to have been around since 2000 B.C.. The word Spirit from Latin. Phantom from Greek. Spook from Dutch. Wraith from Scotland.
It all started with a kinky BBC show about people who fall in love with inanimate objects. Supposedly, there is a woman married to the Berlin Wall and another woman in love with the Eiffel Tower. Okay, the Eiffel Tower I understand. It’s very shapely.
Other than a good laugh I wouldn’t have thought more about the show, but then I read about a line of priests that are said to guard a tree in the woodlands of Diana, the roman goddess of fertility.
One of my first memories as a child was meeting Teddy, my Fairy Godmother. In actuality she is my Godmother. Somehow my childish brain confused my bedtime stories with this sweet, loving woman who in many ways was bigger than life.
As a child I saw her on rare occasions, which helped to keep the Fairy Godmother fantasy alive. When I was an annoying thirteen, we moved nearer to Teddy’s house and I learned how magical Teddy really is.
