The only downside to all this? (And, to some if not most, this is probably not a downside, but fellow Wagon Widow Clair Baxter and I certainly feel this pain…) Everything, and I do mean everything, now relates to a station wagon in some form or fashion.
“Did you know that the Buick Roadmaster had a Corvette engine?”
“Yes, yes, you told me.”
“Did you know that the term ‘station wagon’ was coined in 1911?”
“I think I heard that once or twice or fifteen times before.”
“DID YOU SEE THAT WAGON!”
“YES, PLEASE KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD!”
You get the picture.
Another example: last night, at the conclusion of a very lovely wedding reception, my very lovely husband turns to me and says, “Babe, don’t you wish we would have gotten married two years later so we could have had a wagon-themed wedding?” I have no idea how he’s learned to read my mind with such acuity.
Next step, Wagon ownership…
