embracing the inevitable can still

embracing the inevitable

can still be edgy
a hip, cool super mama
and drive a Volvo

This weekend we bought a car. It’s a used Volvo station wagon – only a few years old – and very peppy if I do say so myself. Of course, it’s not as peppy as the convertible I had right out of college. But it’s a helluva a lot more peppy than some dratted minivan we could have gotten.

So we own a Volvo now. It’s nice. And very safe. And it has a sunroof.

I feel a little like I’m giving in to the suburban demons, but not really. If I listen to Powerman 5000 in my Volvo everything will be right with the world.
