I was having a conversation with my sister yesterday and I swear her car's in menopause.
It's not a very old car, less than 10 years. In our family that's still "relatively new". She calls it her baby rhino, but I think baby is growing old.
It has hot flashes, it's heart (engine) races, it leaks fluids and sometimes you can't turn the steering wheel cause it 'stove up!
Sounds like menopause to me!!
But my sister loves her car, she communes with it, understands it, takes care of it. I think she feels that the care she gives her car will somehow return to her good things. Maybe she's right.
Goodness knows when I get there, I hope to be cared for as well as the baby rhino.
