Old Car

My Red 1997 “GRBABY” Toyota RAV4 is loudly grinding it’s way up the long, steep Route 2 incline as we head West out of Cambridge to visit cousins.


BOY:  Mom, you need to go faster! All the other cars are passing us!

ME:  Sorry Boy. This is as fast as we can go in this old car. You know, when I was a kid my mom had an old car too. Then one day she got a NEW car.  Who knows, maybe the same thing will happen to YOU one day!
