i don’t know if it’s that ma has quit her job and drastically reduced our income, or if i felt like our carbon foot print was just too small, but for whatever reason we purchased a truck. what better way to increase your carbon foot print than to add a v8 to your life. meet monday, and no she is not a diesel running on veggie grease.
no farmer urban or otherwise should be without a truck right? well, i’d managed to resist temptation for a long time, but our friends david and eve were moving and getting rid of it, and ma said she thought it was the right thing to do. ma didn’t waiver a bit on this subject and since she usually takes a long time to decide something and doesn’t sound too firm about it, i went along with it. we named the truck monday in case we decided to get 6 more trucks and drive a different one each day of the week.
so far i’d have to say it seems like a pretty sound move, i’ve already hauled a bunch of stuff around to and from work, and am certainly looking forward to going trash picking. do i feel bad about being a two car family when i think one is excess? yes. but you have not seen the delight in ma’s eyes and the smile on her face when she talks about the truck, how could i deny her?
