Mini Love

A got a nice surprise today. I stopped off to rent a car for a few days, and specifically asked for the cheapest, most economical 4-wheeler that they had.

The price was great, and I was ready to get the keys to my European clunker.

The nice little Euro guy handed me the keys and said, “You will find your BMW Mini Cooper in slot number 9”.

At that point, I felt the need to squeal in delight, but I remained dignified (that’s the European way…) and took the keys.

Anyone who knows me well, knows that a Mini is THE car that I would drive if I didn’t have my munchkins. (just a side note, that I would definitely prefer to have my munchkins than any car!)

So, off I went in my hot temporary wheels!

I’m pretty sure that the cars driving anywhere near me on the autobahn were a little concerned.

After all, it’s not every day that you see a Mini on the road, with a hysterically screaming woman at the wheel.

Woooooooo hoooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

And here’s something interesting. There’s a mini wave.
Yep. Any mini that drove past me stuck their hand right out the window and gave a friendly wave. (yes, all 5 fingers...) Who knew?!

As always, thanks so much for tuning in.
Tcheuss for now! Tomorrow we’re hitting France!

Can I keep it? Please?
