Last night I signed all the papers at the dealership and took the keys to a sage green VW Rabbit. Lots of things in the universe made it even possible.
I haven’t driven much as I needed to return the rental today. A most gracious tip of the hat to Mark for being my savior, taxi driver, lunch, and matinée friend. (We saw The Abandoned and I think it might have been better on youtube in 45 seconds)
It was a tough call (the car, not the movie, really, skip it) as the Honda Fit and Subaru Forester were tempting alternatives.
But the interior of the Rabbit won me over. The knobs are knobs.
I feel like I haven’t seen it in the sunlight yet, which is sorta true. It’s been overcast all day and now an ice storm will keep it* off the road.

I can’t wait to drive, but right now, I’m more worried for someone on the road.
