A little while back, I traded in my gas guzzling monster SUV and I needed something that my 6'3 husband & great dane could both fit comfortably in. I know to look at the Nissan Cube, you may start to laugh and swear to never drive one. Shoot, I did. I only entertained the idea of looking inside one because I had a few minutes to kill while waiting for someone inside the Nissan Dealership in Savannah, Ga. I opened the door on the display car and thought "huh, not bad, not bad at all." Once you get in it, you see all the space in this little car and I bet you start to fall in love, just as I did.
The kids fit, I fit, the tall Mr. and huge dog all fit.
Everything was right with the world, at least for a minute.
Then we moved to El Paso and chose to live off post. I no longer got to drive my cute car on a daily basis due to gas prices and a 30+ minute drive to Biggs. The hubs has an old dodge pick up and I'm stuck driving 'Big Red' while he had my sweet 'Tallulah'.
Apparently a man can only drive this car for so long while being in the Cav and surrounded by testosterone before reaching his breaking point.
I loved my car. Loved it. It was quirky, it was cute, it was different and ironic.
It was so much fun to drive and I enjoyed giggling at people who would stare as I putt putted past.
Let the replacement shopping begin.
After intensive car shopping, we finally found a car we both could agree on. While we were in the middle of the paperwork, and talking to the finance guy I tell him that I loved my toaster and I'm going to miss her.
He stops and stares. "Toaster?" he says. "Yes, my Nissan Cube" I say.
"Wait a minute, that car, the one with the 'Toaster Edition' sticker on the back? The one thats always over here on this side of town?"
"The one and only"
He laughs. Says he can't wait to tell his son that he met the [previous] owners of the Toaster. I guess my car is famous. I had no idea.
This made for a good laugh during a sad time for me.
Now its time to name the new car, cause that's not weird, right? Do you name your cars?
Dollface helped with the naming of Tallulah Pancake. I guess I'll let her help with the naming of the new car too. :) Fun Times.
