  2. Ahhhh ... first car-love affair!

    She was Gidget, a black, sporty Honda CRXsi I received for Christmas. After serving me well for years working at Disneyland and driving back and forth to college on Orange County freeways, I sold her to a fellow whom lived in Big Bear, up in the mountains, year-round. He needed something for the winter months, when he couldn't ride his motorcycle deftly.

    When he came to buy her, he came with two big, burly biker friends. I mentioned to one of them that her name was Gidget and how I loved her. After the exchange of funds for keys, he said, "Thanks! Awesome car!" He burly pal replied, somewhat harshly, "The car has a name! She's Gidget. Respect that."

    Makes me happy every time I see a little, black CRX whiz by on the road. In fact, I think I saw her, parked just down the street at the beach last week. Wouldn't that be lovely?

    Cheers!
