There Will Be No Probe, Nor Will There Be Probing of Any Kind

8:02 pm · category: Rocco's Modern Life... With Me

Today I sent Rocco to the car auction to buy me a new car. (And by “new car” I mean “new to me.”) There were three rules for purchase: (1) small car; (2) good gas mileage; (3) no Ford Probes. I guess I should have been more specific, because this is the phone conversation I had at 10 a.m. today:

Rocco: I found the perfect car. It’s a 1995 Ford Escort station wagon. 70,000 miles, one owner, mint condition.
Me: No.
Rocco: But, Bradi –
Me: I said no.
Rocco: You don’t understand –
Me: No, you don’t understand. I am not driving a station wagon unless you and I make three babies to put in the back seat.
Rocco: Right. I’ll keep looking.

I ended up with a two-door Grand Am.
