al little more about drinking the kool aid
the responses i get after telling people that we bought a minivan have pretty much fallen into 2 categories:
those that say "you didn't seem like minivan kind of people"
those that say "yeah, i resisted for a long time too and now i don't know how i got along without it"
the minivan is surprisingly manuverable and when i went to get groceries today, it was sheer joy to be able to press a button on the remote and have the door open on its own.
every time i lock the doors with the remote, i think of a scene from six feet under in which david and keith are talking about how they first noticed one another and david says something like "i loved the way you locked your car door with the remote looking so tough like 'fuck you car! you're locked!'"
