Met 6139 again on the 21st of September. Couldn’t recognize it at first; all green with red interior and very large rims now, don’t really like the rims, but I’m glad the car is being loved all the same. Also, I guess this is really goodbye 2013. I’m so sorry I couldn’t save you…
It’s been a while. Just thought I’d recap on my life in the past year. Just because I can I’ll do it all backwards.
In March 2012, we moved to a new home:
It’s a 5 year old bungalow previously owned by a royalty who has gotten too old to maintain it himself. House looks small outside but is spacious and airy inside. Our old home has been sold to Uncle Kim Kooi. Still miss it lots.
In December 2011, I bought a car:
Haha yea, after going about it again and again, I finally got one. It’s everything I expected it to be and more.
Oh, and in November 2011, I also got myself a wife:
Times have rarely been good for me, admittedly not very convincing in light of this post, I know; but during the less-than-happy times I’m just really glad I have my family and wife 🙂
Thanks for never failing me whenever my other cars are out of action. Sorry about the disc brake when your wheel fell off cause I didn’t tighten it properly, but I made some friends from that fateful April 27 incident, and even they still remember you fondly. I’m sorry that after almost 30 years in the family, I had to be the one to cause you your very first dent. I’ve successfully not involved you in any accidents even though the broken brake hose was a near miss, but I have had to park you under the tree that unfortunate day. I’m still sad about it. Even if you’re old, noisy, not shiny, guzzle gas, and react slowly, I’ve always been so proud and glad to be driving around in you. I know I was against it when Dad wanted to bring you home, but I quickly changed my mind when I realized what a dignified car you are.
I’m glad your new owner doesn’t mind your scar from the tree. I’m glad he will be restoring you to your former glory, maybe even better, something we’ve always wanted to do but never got around to.
Remember 2013? That black rascal who was always out of commission and you had to stand in for him? He’s still running around, probably better off now. I still miss him and see him around. Always puts a smile on my face. I’m gonna miss you that much too! It’ll probably be harder to see you around, but I’ll still be looking out for the chance.
Live on properly 6139! You’re a survivor!! Thanks for the good times!
Thanks for everything. I’ll miss you.
