when it’s raining:
there is something surreal about having it rain in your vehicle.
topless, doors off, water dripping down from the sunshade cloud.
water dripping off the brim of your hat, thighs wet, yet warm.
the sound of water splashing as the tires spread the rainwater on the pavement.
drain holes opened, carpet completely absent.
the arc of the pooled water,
as I splash through it.
Makes me feel like a kid again
To jump puddles!
on sunny days:
i call myself an aerophyle; the love of the air rushing in
massaging my flesh, sometimes forcefully,
roaring past my ears, filling them with thunderous sound,
save for the music emanating from the roll bar speakers, perfectly placed for
pseudo-audiophyles like me.
wind threatening to lift away my tac hat.
the sweet smell of the sun on my flesh,
fresh cut grass, the flowers, all around.
it’s sexy: the voyeurism, others watching me
commanding the 6-speed stick clutching, shifting;
doing it again.
skirt flapping in the breeze, tauntingly hiding the
flash of heat between my thighs.
on any day:
the knowing waves from other owners,
Never concerned about cutting corners,
I dominate the curbs with these tires.
With a Prius, I could turn on a dime,
With the Jeep maybe a nickel, but no need to worry about hitting an aerodam!
to appreciate then the openness with which others converse
at stoplights, when in an open Jeep;. the mothers whose children
want one “just like that.”
“Are the doors hard to remove?” they inquire.
this year, on Christmas Day:
converting a closed vehicle to an open one.
enjoying the sun, even in the Winter.
Yep, having a Jeep is pretty fucking awesome.
From a Prius: More miles to the gallon.
To a Jeep: More smiles to the gallon.
Never going back to the little fishbowl!
I prefer the open ruggedness of such a beautiful machine,
to which I can add most anything.
yes, it is lovely, this “Jeep thing!”
Topless & dirty by choice!
Saw a Prius with plates that said “fishbowl” 2/23 and knew it was high time to post this…
