Sorry I’m late getting started today. I had to go to the DMV and register my new car.
My Mom and Dad got a brand new car today. And rather than trade in their 2012 Highlander, we traded in my fifteen year old car instead. Which means their 2012 Highlander is now mine!
So say hello to Vader.
Yes, I name my vehicles.
My 2002 Ranger was named Lorelai.
And the 2003 Highlander I’ve had since 2015 was named Connor MacLeod.
(Because “Highlander.” Get it? There can be only one!)
I was going to give this Highlander a Scottish name too, but from the front he looks like, well, Darth Vader.
So I named him Vader.
I have half a mind to record the Darth Vader music from Star Wars and play it on a loop whenever I drive anywhere.
Not really! I’ll be listening to Dusty Springfield because that’s the kind of gal I am.
But I’ll probably hum it routinely just for fun.
This vehicle is a bit more modern than I’m used to. It even talks to you – which kind of freaks me out.
On the big plus side, it is all wheel drive. You have no idea how helpful that will be between late November and early April when snow makes driving a nightmare.
Or maybe you do.
You’ll note the Trumper-Sticker on the back window.
In my neighborhood having a Trump sticker on one’s vehicle window means coming back out to your car and finding your window shattered. So as much as I hate to have to do it, I’m going to have to take that Trump sticker off.
As it is, the NRA stickers on Connor MacLeod were slowly picked away by asshole Lefties in my neighborhood every time I stopped at the grocery store.
People suck sometimes.
Any old how.
That’s where I’ve been all morning. Getting Vader here registered and legal. And that took pretty much all morning.
Because no matter how early you get to the DMV, you spend a minimum of one hour there. I think that might be New York State law.
