A Yellow Expensive Car

Jukebox: La Roux- I'm Not Your Toy

So there are two things prevalent in our modern world that I really am not keen on due to a combination of ignorance and disinterest.

One is football, the other is cars.

Don't get me wrong, I think automobiles are impressively functional machines.  But when it comes to horsepower? transmission? brands?  That's another clueless story of mine.

I know there can't be knockoff cars like knockoff purses,  but in all honesty, a perfectly shiny and new "low-ended" car looks just as appealing to me as a gorgeous shiny "high-ended" car.

This is why, when I saw the following vehicle as I was getting gas the other day, the first thing that went through my head was

"oooooo... pretty, shiny, yellow car!"


In middleschool English, I've learned that various contextual clues can aid in defining an unknown word, or the "status" of a particular vehicle in this case.

So in this instance, the clues that were presented to me include:

1. The three exhaust pipes all symmetrically aligned in the middle.
2. A man walking past me going into the store whipping out his iphone to snap a picture...
3. Another man hollering, "SWEET RIDE" as he pulls out of the gas station.

these facts confirm my suspicions that it indeed is a pretty, yellow, and expensive car.

So what's the next step?  Of course, it would be to make a conjecture about the driver.

The following possibilities came up:  a bad@$$ mafia member, elite socialite, wealthy buisnessman, a racecar guru.

Drum rolls in my mind as the driver's door swivels out....

and out steps this scrawny kid...

in a worn highschool sweatshirt,

backwards cap,

and flipflops.

LOL. howw??

(and to this day, I still have no clue what type of car this is.)
