out the bus window

This morning, I looked out the window of the bus and saw a beautiful Mercedes C-class sedan in the next lane. I studied the graceful curve of the rear door frame (where it meets the C pillar)... it seemed almost organic. Divinely designed. The sun glinted off the deep metallic paint...

I don't know why, but I was instantly reminded of a trip to Sandbanks Provincial Park in the summer of 2001. I was with my (then) boyfriend, and we didn't drive there in a Mercedes.

The glint of the water was the same as the glint on the car maybe? Maybe life is really just a dream, only better organized.

Was it because the people in the car were nude and you were in your "nudist phase" when you were at that beach?

Salem said...

The non-April sunshine and warmth triggered a nice memory, I guess.

Sandbanks isn't a good name like Toad Suck or Mullet.

that park is haunted by the souls of lake monsters from dimension XXYX

Did you go there in a bus?

Capitalist pig.

mitz: no carsex for the ex and I. Isn't Sandbanks awesome?

torn, salem: I almost wrote something about that... the flash of reflected sunshine is the common ingredient

peter: I just knew you'd pipe up with that stuff

fatrobot: I certainly hope not! I swam there, and am very afraid of lake monsters.

butchie: good thinking, but no... we took my Honda

teh: um, hello? I was on public transit while appreciating the beauty of the Benz! That should count for something.

Heidi the Hick said...

Benz, beach. It's all good.

They rode there on a unicycle.

I won once, just once. The year was 3rd grade, the game dodgeball, the other team: one nerd.

Actually, I hit nerd with a basketball in third grade. But I consider that a victory.

"I spotted a Mercedes."

For shame! What kind of clean lines are you seeing on the original machine that was built for the Nazis? When I see that piece 'o shit German mobile, all I think is, "Thanks for funding the killing of 6 million of my people. Oh yeah, you also paid too much for your car, you self hating Jew. (Who knew the Jews would be their best customers).

I think you might of gone there in a Sherman Tank. I would respect that on some level.

Jason said...

I decided I like Jews more cause they are helping out raising awareness with the Sudan genocide.

:)

Jews are nice.

Oops, except on Good Friday.

AG: to quote Janis Joplin... "Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes-Benz? My friends all drive Porsches; I must make amends..." The cars are gorgeous and I make no apologies for lusting after them--tainted as the history of MB may be. I've compromised by going Swedish, as you know.

Jason: are you on drugs today?

Carrie said...

sedatives...he's on sedatives from the funeral....be nice mloyd.

madamerouge said...

If he is, I want some NOW.

Jason said...

No, I'm not on anything except antidepressives because of how mean you are to me.

Butchieboy said...

I spent several years living out of a bus (a nice one with bunks & TV's etc- not a nasty Greyhound) I like bus's.

toobusyliving said...

No, say "a nice bus"

your judgemental aunt said...

I guess I should have waved at you from the car but I was embarrassed to since you were in a bus. Don't be mad

Butchieboy said...

It had a brass pole in it, also, Mitz.

Dead Robot said...

CAR!

(moves to the left of the beach)

BACK ON!

(moves to the centre of the beach)

Carrie said...

butchie is mistaking jimmy for me....he gets confused like that....being old and all.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

I've compromised by going Swedish, as you know.

AG's head explodes with the plethora of comments that could follow on that one.

Mitz, nice one!
