Once in a blue moon.
Where does that saying come from? Putting it into a sentence, one could say, “Some people only get the chance to buy a brand new car once in a blue moon”.
And to finish that sentence off properly, tomorrow I do indeed pick up my new car.
(P.S. Super Moon means it’s orbit brings it to it’s closest point to the earth)
While I currently drive a 3 door manual hatchback, my mother gave me her 4 door auto sedan, and maybe I am getting old or lazy, but I find the auto more enjoyable, and I also find the sedan nicer to drive than my hatchback, even though my car is 5 years younger. And Rassilon seems to prefer the sedan. He climbed in today when I was getting ready to go for our visit, and he didn’t want to get out. So I decided to get a new sedan.
I was thinking of getting the Kia Soul, but it was a bit higher for Rassilon to jump up into, which is fine now, but as he gets older, it could be a problem for him. and looking around, they don’t seem very popular.
Due to a mixup at the dealer, I had the choice, take a 5 door hatch or wait for a sedan to come into stock. Well they just happened to have 1 of each in the show room, and when I looked at the differences / benefits, I decided on the hatch. It still has 4 doors, but it has a bit of extra room in the back, it has a rear window washer/wiper (something I do actually use), plus for their mistake, they threw in the 1st years service.
When I got it home I was sitting in it and looking at all the bells and whistles and trying to work out what does what, I opened the doors to let some air in (I had the windows tinted and can’t open them for 2 days). Anyway, I was busy playing with buttons and Rassilon came out and jumped in the car. He had a look around at the new car and his bigger seat, (another benefit of the 4 door over the 2 door). He gave me a kiss of approval and settled down for a sleep. He doesn’t give me kisses very often, so this obviously met with his approval.
