Last week I wrote about the wonderful experience of purchasing a 2014 Chevy Equinox and all of the tech stuff that comes right along with it. I am very pleased with everything about it (though I miss my 2001 Ford Ranger!) and I have grown comfy with how things work and all of the “hands free” technology that is very nice.
And as sure as death and taxes, my new vehicle received its first “ding” or very slight dent in the driver’s-side door. For one brief shining moment, I felt as though the whole thing was ruined, tarnished forever after, and that it had been de-flowered so unjustly!
Actually, this tragedy occurred shortly after my grandson’s soccer game Saturday morning. In his haste to climb into the front seat of his dad’s F-150, the large door swung just enough to catch the side of my car, which I had thought I’d parked a safe distance away for that to happen.
I got over it and realized that it had to happen sooner or later, but I’d hoped that maybe this would be the one car that would escape all of that. But, there’s no escaping the inevitable, and now I can put that “fear” all behind me and get on with things.
I’ll be loading our two cars on Thursday for our annual migration to the cottage on Magician Lake up in Michigan, and I’m certain that I’ll probably add a “ding” or scratch of my own!….CortlandWriter
