Ghosts In The Machine

As we go through another phase of our lives we find ourselves searching for a new family car.  The ol' Dodge Grand Caravan has paid it's dues, taken us on many trips, and is now ready to retire.  It didn't ask us if we were ready for it to go, the little weasel. If it had I would have said, 'That doesn't work for me.'  But alas, I'm not able to use my Oprah wisdom on machinery.  So on we go, in search of a free car. ;->

Currently we've found another Caravan and it's clean and all (no dog hair, yet) but my heart just isn't in it.  It's the same year as our broken van yet it has crank windows, no head rests for the passengers in the back and only 3 doors.  This is a van remember, 3 doors is a bit inconvenient.  But I'm thinking, beggars can't be choosers so I'll move on.

We were given the incredible, generous option of driving this car for the weekend to see if it would work for us and while I was driving this car home I turned on the radio.  When I tuned into my favorite station what song should be playing?  The Rolling Stones "You Can't Always Get What You Want".

I kid you not.

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
