When I was in college, I got the nickname, “Mom”. This was for a few reasons.
One was because I did Bob’s fraternity brothers’ laundry. I mean…they paid me. It wasn’t for free or anything. I even had a whole system set up. It was my little laundry business for beer money.
Another reason was because I guess I acted kind of “parental” to some of our friends. You know…caring, giving advice, sharing wisdom, etc.
But I think the main reason people called me Mom is because I drove a mini van.
A Dodge Caravan to be exact.
“Mini-me” if you will. (Caravan – KARAvan, get it?)
Some may mock, but it was awesome! Virginia Tech was 6 hours from my parents’ house, but having a mini van meant I had the storage of an SUV but with great gas mileage. Not to mention having a mini van was ideal for piling tons of people into it to go to a party or
DD have someone else DD on the weekends.
Well…let’s just say the girl has seen better days. The last few years I have had to repair the air conditioning in the warm months and the heat in the cold months. Before Clark was born, my dad sold us his old car so I have primarily been using that one anyway.
So long Old Friend. It’s been fun!
Clark thought this meant it freed up a parking space for his new ride that he found in the waiting area.
In other news…we made a home improvement purchase last night that I am SO excited about!! Too bad I won’t be able to show it off for another couple months.
