Let Me Introduce Myself

My name is Maggie Mae. I'm a very pretty (if I may say so myself) red car. I'm a southern girl, with all that "label" entails. I'm gracious, but strong. Kind, but protective. You know....Steel Magnolia. The one thing that I am NOT is a lover of cold weather.

So, what happens? I adopt this Road Warrior about a year ago. I've lived with another family, and they were kind, took very good care of me, but we certainly didn't go many places or have very many adventures. So I make a deal with this lady. She is looking for a companion that will travel with her, keep an eye on things and make sure she gets where she needs to be. In exchange for that I get to travel around, see new sights and she will keep me fed and beautiful.

Sounds like a fair deal.

Then I discovered that this sweet Road Warrior is a liar. Not just any liar, a damned liar.

2 weeks after I come to live with her she exposes me to this nasty stretch of road they call the corridor of hell - I4. While there I have a nasty encouter with a gravel truck. Yes, he actually messed with my very attractive tushy. Can you imagine?

Anyway, she's been fairly true to her word since then. Until this week.

As we started our adventure Tuesday evening she told me it might be a bit chilly when we reach our final destination. Again she lied.

It's not a tad bit chilly. It's flippin COLD! And there is this stuff on the roads that keep my lovely tires from gripping, I think they call it ice. And then these nasty salty pellets that are getting all over my pretty paint job and up under my sweet belly.

And she's leaving me out in this crap. She sits inside that little cottage, coming out on the front porch to check on me - yet she leavs me out here. Alone. She hasn't been out to start me, or ask if I'm alright. Nothing.

I just wanted to let the world know that this Road Warrior isn't really such a nice lady. You need to know the truth.

And I'll get my revenge. You just watch and see.
