Tuna Showdown

Today was a first for me. Brad and I went to a car dealership and took a large SUV out for a test drive. I drove. It was a beast of a vehicle. A very safe, high, leathery, full of nifty storage compartments beast. Yes, I know- you are thinking: What? Gas prices are so high and they're test- driving SUV'S? All I have to say to you is: Whatever, Trevor. Go ask Brad. I trust him with the financial/car decisions around here. Plus, it feels safe. I like safe. Especially when it's for him. ( The vehicle is primarily going to be for him. Unless I fall in love with it and decide to purloin it.) )( Ooo- purloin is such a luscious word.)

A woman from the dealership came with us and told me where to drive. I felt like I was in Driver's Ed again.

And in conclusion: I have two things to say.

First, only on the show "Iron Chef" could you find this show description: Tuna Showdown. The juxtaposition of these words is the funniest thing I've seen all day.

Secondly, everyone needs to go right out and get - and EAT - a new flavor from Ben and Jerry's - Cinnamon Bun! SO GOO-OO-OO-OO-OOD.

I had occasion to drive a Nissan Armada at one point a couple years ago. It was both terrifying and empowering because, whatever, just try to get in my way. And please don't sue if I hit you because I can't see for 10' in front of this behemoth.

Yay for big vehicles that put the world at our feet! :)

Niiiice. The other day, as we were driving somewhere, Ethan said wistfully, "I wish we had a UPS". I finally figured out that he meant an SUV, like many of his friends...ha,ha.
