How to be an adult: buy a car.

I just bought a car.  I just BOUGHT a car!  I JUST BOUGHT A CAR!!!!!  My 2007 Ford Focus would like to say hello to you:

Welcome to my life new car, welcome.

My roommate asked if I bought it on a whim…one might say whim only because I went to the dealership yesterday, asked to see their Ford Focuses, drove it and then boom I was putting it on hold and asking my dad if he could come see it (because adults still need their dad’s help, especially with cars).  To be fair, I have been looking for a car for about two months and wanted to get one before the first snowfall so this wasn’t a complete whim…although I could even tell that the salesman knew he didn’t have to work too hard to convince me to buy it…

After signing my name to 10958 billion papers I am now a newer 100% non-loan paying car owner.  I will miss my old car (actually I probably won’t) but I’ve been driving it for nine years, yep NINE years, so it’s time to move on.

See you later Geo, thank you for your hundreds of thousands of miles...sorry I drove you into a house...twice...

p.s. While waiting at the dealership we saw a woman with two tiny dogs wearing pink parkas, pink bows and sitting on a pink blanket.  It was phenomenal.

  1. Nice ride! Though you didn’t explain about the BSB song in your post….
    p.s. Was the lady with the dogs looking for a pink car? Lol

  2. Dad and I were trying to remember how long you’d had your Geo. We were thinking of asking Uncle Brad if he wants the Geo back for Steph. (Your brother is already trying it out.)

    Anyway, we’re happy you found a car and that the dogs in pink made the whole experience even more memorable.

    I am happy to report to you that I have ordered curtains for the living room. Then I can say: “See you later, Cardboard (in the recycling box), thank you for your months of service…sorry you had to stick around covering the windows.

  3. Mir- I heard BSB playing at the dealership. A sign I was in the right dealership.

    Laura- I wish the lady with the dogs were waiting for a pink car…I guess they could have been I think she was just waiting for her car to get serviced…I didn’t look if it was pink or not….and YES let’s go on a road trip soon!

    Mom- Yes, I’ve had my car since I was 16…so 9 years!

    Carly- Thanks!
