And on Friday, no less. :-)
1. Do you have a car? If so, what kind of car is it?
1997 Plymouth Neon in a color I can only describe as being "almost exactly like the thistle color in the 64 box of Crayola crayons."
2. Do you drive very often?
56 miles (at least) a day. I feel like I spend half my life in the wretched car.
3. What's your dream car?
Heck, I still miss my Dodge Omni. All right, I confess. It's a PT Cruiser.
4. Have you ever received a ticket?
Two: a speeding ticket (sheesh, I didn't think my Chevette could do 72 miles an hour) and one after an accident (see below).
5. Have you ever been in an accident?
Twice, once in 1977 when I was rear-ended on the freeway. The insurance company of the person who hit me was so slow in responding that I had major body work done on the car to fix it and then was using it again before they ever came by to inspect the damage. The other was sometime between 1984-1988. I was making a left turn out of a supermarket parking lot and was struck by another car. My car came within less than $25 of being totalled, but I received the ticket because the policeman said I failed to yield right of way. It would have been pretty hard to yield right of way to a car I didn't see coming because it was dark out and he didn't have his lights on. (He was an Air Force officer, so the policeman believed him, not me.)
Sorry. Still aggravates me. :-)
