Akin to wrestling with a lithe, new lover, I threw my car around the turns. Easing off the gas into them, then double-clutching with a smooth shift before accelerating out of them. She was tight and wanted more, but this was still foreplay for me; I downshifted at the yield, letting off the clutch slowly and she growled a throaty protest before I floored it, unleashing her once again over another volley of gentle rises and dips interspersed with unending turns. This is my town, these are my roads, and she is my car - a beautiful mixture of curves and strength - who loves to envelope me, and prove to me what she's capable of.

Its always nice to slip behind the wheel and inhale the leather after driving the hippo exclusively for an extended period of time. Each trip to Kansas and back is just that. She's slung so low that everything about driving her is different - and I become a different man when I'm in her. Not aggressive, but more...confident (if such a thing were possible). I feel safe with her, and offer her my soul in return for her compliance.

So far, so good.

I applaude your subtle use of extended metaphor.

By use of the word 'akin' I was attempting to denote a simile, but thank you all the same. Its the thought which counts.

As an aside, were you present in the vehicle when that shot was taken?

That isn't what I was referring to; I was hoping not to have to spell this out. But then again, you may have just rendered me an invaluable service, re: proving that so-called literary interpretation has nothing to do with the author's intention and that authors just make shit up and revel in their accidental success post-scription.

Specifically, I was referring to:

She was tight and wanted more, but this was still foreplay for me

and

I become a different man when I'm in her

Perceptive observation - especially where poetry or inference are concerned! Then again, I was replying to what I thought YOU meant, which turned out to be something altogether different. Interesting exercise!

It makes The Charge of the Light Brigade look like a sensible military exercise.

I've often wondered that myself. It's quite possible, but as I don't have a time stamp on the picture (I haven't attempted to extract EXIF data) it would be speculation at this point.

Aye. They were taken half-an-hour apart.

Then I think you have your answer!

I don't know what kind of car you are driving, Eric, but I definitely think you should do the commercials. :-)

I like lists. I don't know why. I think its so I never forget - because that sometimes happens.

I have a post on every place I've ever lived, every workstation I've ever set up and every place I've been stationed. I try for organization, I do - nearly every facet of my life has been chronicled here and tagged to one degree or another, though I'm always looking to streamline and improve.

And yes, there's even a post for every car I've ever owned.

But I think Hyundai prefers more family-friendly commercials :P
