with apologies to minivan-driving moms. or not.

I've been driving a minivan for four days thanks to a glitch in the complicated part of my normal not-a-minvan ride. If I never have to drive one again, I'll die a happy woman.

In the meantime, the dog is thrilled to be chauffeured to the beach for swims and frequent sandy romps. He loves the minivan. And I love not planning on ever vacuuming it.
