We are a two car family for the first time ever. Or at least we will be on Tuesday. We put a deposit on this zippy little 2005 Ford Echo on Friday. The mileage (kilometerage?) is 5 or 6 litres per 100 kms so it uses about half the gas the 4Runner does.
Oscar loves car shopping. He managed to charm four chocolate chip cookies out of one of the salesman and he got to play with a huge box of toys including a dinosaur that swap heads. What's not to like. Rich also like car shopping although he would probably prefer to be shopping for a brand spanking new 4Runner. He gets very attached to cars. He refers to our 4Runner as "her." He's named "her" Fi which is short for Fiona 4Runner. I catch him caressing the dash or the steering wheel sometimes. He claims he's dusting it. Hmmm.
