Shouldn't Have Said Anything
This car started out as mine, then went to Anna, came back to me when the Focus died and Den took my car, and will go to DJ if it lives that long. And what does all of this have to do with the picture? The interior is gray. I know the floor board looks kind of dingy but trust me it's clean just old.
One night when Anna still lived here, she was driving herself and DJ to their grandmother's house.(Sounds like this story should have a wolf) If you have ever driven just north of Chicago, you know what hell is. It was also, a Friday night and there was a ton of construction. Throw in a little brother and Anna had a huge mess! DJ decided he was bored and started yanking the cup holder in and out. She later said that she wanted to smack him but the traffic was too fierce to take her hand off of the wheel. So here is what I was told the conversation went like(my guess is Anna cussed at him too but left that out)-
Cup holder being yank back and forth as fast as humanly possible
Anna-Knock it OFF!
DJ-Haha, you can't stop me
Anna-I'M GOING TO CALL MOM!
DJ-No you aren't, you have to drive.(Can't you just hear the smug little brother tone?)
The cup holder is still being pulled back and forth with increasing speed
Anna-YOU ARE GOING TO BREAK IT! AND IT'S MY CAR!
DJ-You can't stop me!
So we didn't have a cup holder for a while. And every time I had to drive around with a coffee mug in my lap and it spilled, I wanted to kick the boy. I went to my in laws one time and it looked like I had pissed myself cuz I had to slam on the breaks and I dumped water all over myself.
Since poor Den has spent so much time trying to get parts for the cars, he found another cup holder at the junk yard and replaced. And this little fix only cost $2.73! After I thanked him, he apologized for the color seeing as that was the only one he could get. Have I mentioned that I'm color blind? I would never known!
Thanks for stopping over,
