selling baby...

Well... it's been weighing on me heavy and no matter what I seem to do, I can't keep the jeep anymore. Time to remove the stickers, take out the floormats and move out of it. I don't know how I'm going to be able to sell him since I'm the only one who will ever love him like he deserves. I never got to do all the stuff I wanted to, but I've a million kick ass pictures to remember baby by and a lot of great memories.

I got him back in 2006. I remember sitting in the dealership thinking what the hell am I doing? Have you seen gas prices lately? What the hell are you going to do with a Jeep? But, for years I've desired a Jeep. I'd watched them roll by in groups like a gang of buddies headed anywhere but here. Yes, I romaticized it, but I wanted a Jeep.

My first test drive was actually a beautiful 2006 slate colored Rubicon decked out to the teeth and ready to eat up the trails. I laughed when he told me what the payment would be and asked to see something a little closer to what I could afford. He took me out to see a little white Wrangle SE. It had the tiniest tires I have ever seen, but I wanted a Jeep so we went back and started the paperwork.

I sat there giving him all the information needed to sign away my first born and changed my mind. I walked out of the dealership with him chasing after me knocking money off the deal. I told him it wasn't the right color and I really wanted silver. He called later that night but I didn't answer. I wanted a jeep but that stinking adult in me was telling me what a big foolish mistake it would be.

It only took a couple hours for the kid in me to muzzle the adult and I was back on the lot the next day after another phone call from the dealer who suddenly had a silver Jeep on the lot. So once again, I was signing paperwork after a test drive around town. This time I didn't have second thoughts and my first born is a distant memory but now the government is after me so I've got to run. I've got my passport and a couple grand stowed in my pocket. Time to disappear off the face of the earth. I think the red hair suits me well, so I'm headed to become a traveling gypsy somewhere in Europe I think. Either that or I might start an underground fight club and take the world down one bar of soap at a time. If you made it through all this crap and still think I'm serious you're a total glutton for punishment and should really not take me so dang serious on this the most entertaining of days.

i was actually getting a tear in my eye for you until I got to the part about the passport and the red hair. That's when I remembered what day it is. Good one Tiny, you got me

Scout, you're a wanker.


I decided to sell a kidney instead. It's on eBay. Barely used.

Not what I heard! I heard it's (the kidney, that is, not Baby) got a salvage title that you had to run thru 2 other states to get it cleared! Buyer beware!
