I think Gary Numan said it best:
Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It’s the only way to live
Car Seat week continues with a bit of stretch, the topic is cars and they do have seats, but both are tiny. As my readers know the only places open early in the morning are the library, Wal-Mart and the grocery store. While I don’t really go to Walmart all that much, it is occasionally good to check out the sales and kill time. There is only one problem with my wandering around Wal-Mart. I tend to end up in the toy aisle and for 97 cents I can get LTD either a Hot Wheels or Matchbox car that he can’t use until he is three. I justify this practice by only creating a car collection that even the gods would envy. I only get him Ferraris, Lamborghini’s and other high-end sport models. Of course, the pride of my collection is Thomas Sullivan Magnum’s car, the Ferrari 308 GTS (I know technically the car belongs to Robin Masters, so please no angry letters). I will admit that I have strayed from my stated mission by buying the occasional cool big Matchbox car like the British Double Decker bus and the dump truck with huge wheels. Unfortunately, I have had to slow down the pace of the collecting due to the fact that I have a little over two years to go before he can even open the first package and I already have enough to keep his busy for a few weeks of crashing and jumping. So now I only get the really, really cool ones like the 1960’s Adam West Batmobile.
