Smart and Emotional by Janet Heisey

I have a five year old car that still makes me smile. Is it so wrong of me to look at a newer model?

When Smart cars were first introduced to Canada, I bought one. My Smart and I have had a very nice five years together. I use it only as a city car, and with my disability parking permit (yes that’s legit) it feels as if I can go anywhere and park anywhere. I love the feeling of freedom; I love its perky and distinctive looks. In short, I love my Smart. I suppose I feel loyal to it too, so it was with a tiny bit of guilt that I agreed to test drive a new model. I rationalized this the way a happily married man does who cannot help noticing a pretty woman: “just looking,” seeing the menu does not mean he’s going to have a meal - that kind of thing. (Will my husband read this?) I assured myself, and the Smart in my driveway, that my curiosity was completely innocent.
