...a windows-down sort of driver.

The other day I rolled my car window down and it didn't roll back up. After my manly neighbors concluded something was broken inside the door (obvious??!!) it started raining and it didn't stop for weeks. Literally. Needless to say, instead of taking care of the fix immediately I put it off and drove someone else's car for a while. Then the sun came back out and I got back in my own car and realized that I could't listen to music, the wind whistling through my car on the freeway was much too loud. And what if someone over hear my choice of music? There is no way they would understand me listening to Taylor Swift and Ludacris intermittently.

It only took a day of driving with the window down for it to be my new favorite summer thing. At night I could hear the crickets chirping and during the day I just soaked in the smells of summer (bbq's, pools, hot sun). I have my window fixed now, but it is rarely rolled up when I am driving.

Now if only I can learn to accessorize like Grace Kelly I will really be ready to enjoy my afternoon drives.

Because we all know my car is plenty big enough to be a cruiser.
