Now I wish I had Car!

As much as I wonder how do you do it, drive I mean, there are times when a car really is handy. Any trip to Home Depot for example, or if you make friends in the ‘burbs. But for a long time now, I’ve been happy car free DC, and seeing the crazy prices of gas, I kinda get smug in my auto-free ways.

That is until I see a post like this on Craigslist and kick myself. A driver for your teenage daughter? Count me in. At least she’d have to talk to me, unlike girls on park benches.

Then again, I could always stick around DC and up my gay percentage with a Craigslist job like this. 17th and T, and “looking for in shape guy” willing to “briefly describe yourself” before agreeing to hire? Yeah, and I’d only be “reorganize clothes closets, etc”, eh? Puleeaze!

    I think the “look at me, I don’t drive a car” and the “look at me, you’d think I’m gay” jokes have been sufficiently played out.

    So you’d think.

    Then again in car-obsessed America, I still get blank stares when I say I’m car free. And in sex-phobic America, I still get looks of shock when I say I hang out at gay bars.

    The day a guy is “normal” when walking down the street, fabulously fashionable, I’ll stop talking about car free DC or gay percentages.
