This exercise in writing came from the book:Write This Way by Kelly Gallagher.
I knew when I got a job where I'd be required to spend much time in my car, that I would have to have a special car. It would be a car that showed my personality. It would be a car that would make me happy just to look at it. I wanted something that just shouted: "ME!". It had to be a car that stood out in a parking lot. One that I could spot from the top of the Anthis entrance steps. It needed to be a car everyone would know was mine. A car that when sitting in the parking lot of a school, everyone driving by would say, "Oh, Kathy must be at that school today." It would be a car that when someone found out it was mine, they would say: "It just looks like you."
Well, I have that car and have had the same type and color for seven years. My little, bright yellow VW beetle certainly reveals who I am!
