So after spending three days in Chattanooga with my sister’s family, today we drove to South Carlina to visit my parents. First we drove my sister and her daughter to Atlanta and dropped them off at the airport (they spending a few days having a mother/daughter trip in New York City, and will meet us in SC on Saturday) and then the three of us and the dog continued down the road to South Carolina. It was a long boring drive in mostly heavy rain, but I have to admit, I really enjoyed driving their awesome SUV. I don’t often get a chance to drive a car from the 21st century.
I am perfectly happy with my car, which has the latest and greatest features from 1998, like a sweet stereo with a cassette player and a five CD changer. My sister’s car, on the other hand, had automatic wind-shield wipers that know how fast to go depending on how hard it’s raining, headlights that go on automatically depending on how dark it gets, a video camera for backing up, a beeping system for when you get to close to another car, and best of all, satellite radio, which kept me happily singing along to tunes from the 70s, 80s, and 90s for six hours, much to my children’s annoyance.
