So I think it's time I finally introduced you to the newest love of my life. [And yes, I might have multiple loves-of-my-life simultaneously. I'm sure you understand.]

If you've already met her, I'm sure you consider yourself lucky.

If you haven't, meet Roxy. [Or, if you have already met her, please allow yourself some time to admire.]

[Just to avoid any confusion, let me clarify: the girl in the picture is me. Not Roxy. Me. Make sense? If you're reading this blog, you probably already knew that. If you're my best friend, and you're just figuring that out now, you're demoted. The car is Roxy. Okay. Just had to make sure.]

*Sigh* Isn't she beautiful?

When I first laid eyes on Roxy, I knew my life would never be the same. Even now, one-and-a-half weeks later, my feelings remain unchanged.

If you're confused as to why I am in love with this car, go back up and take a look at that picture again. Go ahead, right now. Now that you've done that, you're probably not confused anymore. But if there's any lingering confusion, let me just say: I have never owned a car in my twenty-one years of living. Sheesh, that's probably like a fourth of my life. So I've gone one-fourth of my life [give or take] without any wheels. My pioneer ancestors are probably shaking their heads at me in disbelief at this moment, but if you are from this century (which I hope you are, because if you aren't, that would be weird on so many levels), you understand.

Plus, in the one-and-a-half weeks that I've had her, we've gone many-a-place, had some delightful, in-depth, one-sided conversations, and jammed out to some pretty awesome tunes. She's a fantastic listener, let me tell you.

And the best part about it is, I think she loves me, too.

[Again, just as a refresher. Car: Roxy. Girl: me.]

Call me crazy.

YAY!!!! Also, I think it should be noted that I've been demoted. But in my defense you did say "if you've already met her, I'm sure you consider yourself lucky." Yeah. I've already met you. And I consider myself lucky for having done so. I rest my case. Now bring Roxy up so I can meet her! And why Roxy? Why not Rosie, Big Red, or Sarah Tiffany Ann Jasmine Alice Susan Claire? Or my personal favorite: Beulah?

Ooh I hadn't seen that sun-screen (what's the word for that?) yet! LOVE. And I'll be honest....I like your car, PT Cruiser or not. It's pretty special. I look forward to many (more) adventures in said vehicle. Think we could use the backseat as permanent extra closet space? Think about it...
