Really? That is the question for the day. Mommy kissed all of us goodbye this morning and walked out the door. We heard her chuckling from the front porch. Why do you ask? Look closely at the picture above. Across the street in the yard, there was a chicken. A real goodness chicken. Why did it cross the road? Probably because it knew of mom’s passion for fried chicken? Snorts and rolls around in piggy laughter.
Never fear – the chicken is live and well. Mom knocked on the owner’s door and told him his chicken was out. He said it got out of his chicken house. What a thought. There’s an escaped chicken in our hood.
Mommy wanted to do a test between our two cars – Albert the Smart Car vs Tank the Equinox – to see which one is more fun to drive. I know – mom lives a full exciting life huh? Snorts. Okay so I’m breaking down the competition for you.
In this corner we have Tank. Tank is a 1996 Chevrolet Equinox. Tank weighs around 5,000 pounds give or take. Holds about 18 gallons of gas. Can seat five and has a cargo storage area in the back. Labeled as a SUV although it doesn’t really look or drive like one. Very comfortable for long trips. Nicknamed Tank because it withstands a beating and still comes out strong and ready to ride. And did we mention awesome for long trips – great seating and space.
In this corner we have Albert. Albert is a 2010 Smart Fortwo Passion Coupe. Albert weighs in between 1,500-1,800 pounds and can be driven either manually or stick. Albert only holds 8.7 gallons of gas but goes and goes and goes getting excellent gas mileage. Albert can only seat two – tops. Albert is gas efficient yes but smooth driving – not so much. You feel every bump in the road. Personally for one person – you get used to the ride and love it. The hub not so much. Long trips – it can be worrisome. Highways don’t bother you much but if it is windy, you will be fighting to keep the car in the lane. Great car to ride around town, back and forth to work or grocery trips. Remember all of those times your parents said playing Tetris wouldn’t pay off? Well in this car and grocery shopping, it does 🙂 Has a little cargo area in the back – just perfect for this little oinker or some groceries.
So there you go – the two contenders. Here’s the challenge. Mom will drive one car for each day. While driving the car, she will do the following:
- Wave at two cars that are similar in make and see what people do.
- Let two people in front of her at different times to see what people do.
- Go through a drive thru and pay for the breakfast behind her to see what people do.
This is a challenge to see what people do while she is driving each car. Why? Because mom swears that she is treated differently when driving the other car. And besides, mom is like this. She likes challenges. So, what do you think will happen? Look here for the blog to see the results.
Yep – I said that and you read correctly – Men Twerking. I know my buddy Fozzie is going to laugh when she sees this sign that me and mom saw in our adventures. Someone added a few letters and now men are twerking – snorticles and rolls around laughing. I wonder if the guys knew why people were pointing and laughing at them as they drove by? Maybe that explains why some of their pants were so low you could see sunset crack? Maybe – just maybe – the guys were the ones that did this to the sign. No Fozzie – it wasn’t me honestly. Looks innocently around. Really I was in the back of Albert, mom’s Smart car. I wouldn’t do that. Snorts and squeals.
