… but dad, I really love this car. It’s so tiny, but very cozy. I can see all the trees passing by and the sports suspension feels so great. I also dig the sound system. I know you and mom bought this car before I was even a thought in your heads.
Don’t do it!!
I’m begging you dad, don’t let the MINI Cooper go. I’ve only had 4-5 trips in the sporty car and I’m already sold. What do I have to do to force you to keep this car? I’m totally capable of looking very cute. I could take an extra nap during the day if that’s what you want. Perhaps I could comment on your blog more. You name it dad and I will do it. I remember you and mom stating the MINI would be in your possession until you grew old. I distinctly remember you saying something about me driving it when I turn 16. How did this change?
Yes, it’s true. We’ve decided to do the unthinkable. We’re showing our MINI off tonight and it’s quite possible this time tomorrow we could be sans our first enfant Bruiser. We waited patiently for seven months before the MINI Cooper felt our bums on its leather seats. 28,300 miles later it’s time to move on. There are very fond memories of our little car. Parting with our MINI isn’t an easy thing for us as he’s a damn fun car to drive. Tonight’s prospect will be giving the car to his 16 year old daughter. Considering the fact this is something I wanted to do for Anna, maybe this is the perfect fit. No, we are not trading in our MINI for a minivan. We’re thinking Prius maximus. It’s been a great ride MINI, Motor On!
UPDATE: the MINI and our family part ways today (Monday). It’s a sad day for me. I spent last night rifling through the MINI paperwork and got a bit teary. This is all part of the process of parenting and adjusting to life’s little twists and turns. I trust the car will be in good hands, but damn did we ever love our little Bruiser. In the three plus years of owning the car, nobody else has driven it until last Friday night. Me so sad.
