The Ford Company meant well.
They spent a pretty penny reuniting the main characters from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation to introduce their new hybrid Mustang. I’m sure it will have some nice bells and whistles, but I can’t help but wonder if this car will be the Edsel of the new millennium.
Gone are the days of muscle cars revving their engines at a red light to the music of Steppenwolf – are they now replaced by hybrid muscle cars (Steroid cars) competing to see who’s engine is more silent while listening to Kenny G’s “Songbird?” God, I hope not.
Going to Great Britain is on my bucket list after COVID, as I want to see everything from Big Ben to the West End. There’s a lot to love about England, from the history of the Beatles to going to see Buckingham Palace (they even drive on the left side of the road, just like they do on the Maryland side of the Beltway! 😂)…I just have one small pet peeve….why the extra U between words with O and R? Are we uncivilized in America for spelling color instead of “colour?” (On a side note, Living Colour gets a free pass, because their music is so awesome.) If it was called “Mister Rogers Neighbourhood”, I would expect Mr. Belvedere to come through the front door!
Anyway, these two things popped into my head at 2:27 this morning, after waking up from a horrible dream. What I vividly remember was saying these words to someone in my dream, and it’s been on my mind all day….perhaps because we’re just about to end one of the worst years of our lives, and I’m hoping that next year brings peace and prosperity to everyone. Here’s the poem: “For the wretched venom that you spew/bad karma will come back to you/first walk a mile in another’s shoe/and then you’ll know what you should do. Whenever it snows, whenever it rains/may frigid ice run through your veins/your evil words you can’t contain/just show that you don’t use your brain.” Perhaps my subconscious is tired of all the bickering on social media?
May 2021 be a wonderful year…perhaps I’ll get a steroid car with a red colour?
