Kind of funny to say, but my car is exceedingly polite. When I was letting it warm up this morning, it very politely told me that there could be icy conditions on the roads. I could just hear that soft voice warning me about the possible ice…you know, “hello…I just want you to be aware of the possibility of ice on the roads this morning as you’re on your way to work. Please drive carefully and have a good day.”
Okay, it didn’t really express it that way, but that’s how I imagine it talking. Hmm…wonder why I never hear it talking to me in a deep man’s voice? Something like…”Yo…black ice comin’ at ya, take a risk and go for a spin.” Somehow that’s not all that comforting.
I wonder what it will say to me tomorrow? And why does it never ask me why in the world I’m out so darn early in the morning?
