We killed him for our Brand New PRIUS!! It is the car of my dreams. I went thrifting today and filled it up! Love it!
I also realized that with this purchase Rafter and I have completed our identity as California Hippie Yuppies. In our collection: Iphones, Pomeranian, Craftsman Bungalow home, Luxury Cat, Macbook pros, backyard garden, Co-op membership, spca rescue cat, & No on 8 protest signs on the front porch ready to roll.
Anyhoo, I don't give a shit. I am stoked.
The only weird thing that has happened so far, is that last night at Lipstick I was showing it off and a friend of mine, a party girl, who I have know for years, although she is still underage, (like half the girls at lipstick), said, without hesitation, "Awww, did Rafter buy it for you?"
I was so stunned, I just looked at her. After a moment I asked if she was kidding.
I have been saving my money for five years waiting for this day and I am so proud of myself. I bought it with my own money, free and clear. It was so bizarre and alarming to hear a young woman just ASSUME that my husband bought it for me. Bummer.
