You know how it is.. after the breakup.. when all you have left of your loved one is a little paper that says ‘demolished’. When you think you can never love again. That anything after this can only be a meager substitute..
And then your new partner turns out to be stronger, safer and more beautiful than all the others. And most importantly: Red. I just can’t help thinking of that episode of ‘Perfect Strangers’
‘Cousin Cousin! I found it! I found the car of my dreams!’
”And what is it Balki, that makes you think this is the car of your dreams?”
So today I transferred my garish blue dragon seat covers to my pretty red Lancer and took my first pleasure ride along the dyke (not a lesbian) blasting ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet’ on the speakers.
