Mini

Here's something I've been thinking about for, oh, several years:  Minivans.

Minivans are like the "Rachel Morgans" of automobiles.  Efficient, practical, unflashy, most likely to have the most kids, you get what I'm saying.  We SHOULD be a match made in heaven.

But here's the thing: I've always hated them.  Even in my youth when our family car was a 15-passenger Ford Club Wagon did I despise minivans.  ("I will never drive one of those!")

And, just for the record, my parents went from a suburban to the Big Blue Whale, then to another Econoline with a bigger engine, and then to another suburban.  They downsized to their first minivan last year.
(I feel like that's a punchline to a joke .... "You know you're a Mormon when ....!")

Minivans just make sense!  Cheaper than SUVs to buy and to drive! So many family-friendly options!  So much space!
And, to be fair, they're getting flashier.

That, my friends, is why I feel it's inevitable for me to own a minivan someday.  It is my destiny.

Hah! I agree with you Kels! My mom got studded tires on her Sienna so she would feel better about driving in the winter. She's pretty paranoid though.
Dani, you crack me up.
