Changing Cars Like Underwear . . .


Now, Younger Daughter has a perk
Of often changing cars at work,
So every year or so would find
We had wheels of another kind.

 

 

 

 

This year has been a bit absurd,
May, new Avanza was the word,
But now you find our means of trav.
Has altered into a new Rav.

 

 

 

 

The passengers that one can drive,
From seven, have gone down to five,
And yet it is a larger size,
Which is a bit of a surprise.

As good as holiday, change is,
And this has not turned out a swiz;
A thing to make YD ecstatic
Is that the change is automatic.

Ginormous wheels mean that the ride
Is comfortable; quiet inside;
But I fear Rav’nous appetite
For fuel will give us all a fright.

Just took it to Squad Gala night
Where R swam more than just alright,
But sadly, J, after a fall,
Decided not to swim at all.

    It’s been a while since we’ve had a new car. We drive a small Prius and it’s great for mileage, but if “the whole gang” is together, we aren’t the ones to drive! And sometimes we end up needing to rent a larger vehicle. A new car is always a pleasure to drive, I think!

      Our little Toyota Yaris is also good on consumption, and after a number of years is a familiar thing indeed. I don’t get to drive the Rav, sadly. On family outings Younger Daughter as the owner designates herself as the driver.

    . . . you need a Suburban . . . but you probably wouldn’t like the gas mileage.

    That’s my car! I love my sparkling white Rav 4. My Previous one seated seven and for a while I didn’t miss it, but now with all the new littlies I could really do with the extra seats!
    Hope things improve on the health front for your little one!

      So you also have one?
      It will be some years yet before our littlies add littlies (I would very much hope and expect) so it should be fine for us for now.
      Yes, I wish we could pin these so-called experts down!
