What Kind of Car are You?

Posted on November 20, 2004 by under Life.    

Brian and I were talking about cars the other day..  You know, since we’re preoccupied about that stuff lately.  He wants to be practical and perhaps get a good reliable used car for me.  I was thinking that if that were the case I’d just wait a couple of years and get the car that I really want.  But then, we don’t think Sunny will last six months, let alone two years!

In trying to think of suitable cars, I asked Brian what kind of car he thought I would be if I were a car and not a person.  He said that I would be a Cadillac XLR.  I don’t even know what those look like so I had to ask him to elaborate.  He goes, “You know.. Classy with nice lines.”  I bust up laughing.  He must be thinking of someone else, surely!  I would never in a million years describe myself as classy.  You’re talking to a girl who picks her nose, likes to sniff armpits, thinks farting the alphabet while aiming it at your spouse is hilarious and burps louder than Shrek.

Anyway, I was thinking to myself that I could get a car to match my personality.  So I asked him, “Can I afford a Cadillac XLR?”  He goes, “Hell no!”  Ack, how can he be telling me I resemble a car that I can’t even afford?  WTF?!

Then he starts thinking, “What did we say I was again?”  I go, “A Suburban” as I burst into laughter.  I remember telling him he reminded me of a Suburban because he’s big and roomy.  He goes, “Oh, yeah..  Because I’m strong and powerful with lots of room in the trunk.”

I go, “You could be a Suburban with a flat tire” just because I like picking on him.  He goes, “Great.  So not only am I big, I’m slow too.  You could say that I’m a Suburban with a flat tire and misfiring piston because I’m a little crazy too.”

And then, of course, I had to bring back the conversation to me..  Because of how self-absorbed I am.  You know how it goes.  Seriously though, I really didn’t buy that Cadillac crap.  I think he must be wanting to get laid or something.  But I digress, I want a car that would resemble my personality so I had him keep thinking.  And then I came up with an idea on my own..  “I could be an RX8,” I tell him.  But he disagreed.  He said I wasn’t fast and racy.

So I still don’t know.  Hmmm..  Now I it’s your turn to ponder the question: if you were a car, what kind of car would you be?  Do you think I would be a Cadillac convertible?  If not, what car do you think I would be?  I’m curious!  Leave the answer in the comments.  I’m hoping we’ll get some interesting ones. =)

UPDATE: I went to the Cadillac website and checked out what an XLR looks like so I know what Brian is talking about.  I gotta admit.  They’re pretty spiffy.  I think I just replaced my dream car!  Lotus Elise step aside.  Ching wants an XLR in blue steel now!  Maybe when I win the lottery!  LOL!
