I would be really really happy and excited and all that if I could only breathe

Haiku Friday

new car, leather smell
in less than twenty four hours
but sinuses stuffed

*****

colds make me cranky
bus people give dirty looks
so I sniff louder

*****

tomorrow’s all dark
but the day after we turn
slowly back to light

*****

Yay!! We finally got our asses in gear and bought a car!! We are really going to need it once Mr.Q goes back to work in February, but it’s a 2007, so we wanted to grab it while it was still around. No photos yet, because we don’t actually get the car until tomorrow, after they do whatever new car stuff they have to do to it. Not to worry, mid week photo op will be all about the car. Particularly, since I’m the one who gets to drive it [gotta love how that works]. I couldn’t bring myself to go minivan and had issues driving a larger [read: taller] SUV, so it’s a wagon – like this, but grey.

Now, ‘scuse me, I have to go find some more Kleenex.

  1. Oooh! New cars are fun! (whether or not you can smell them immediately!) Feel better soon! 🙂

  2. Congratulations on the car.
    Condolences on the cold.

    Hope you are feeling better very soon. Don’t want you to miss out on all the new car smell.
