Well, here it is Christmas, and I have to think of what presents to get everyone. My husband is easy — he got a professional car lift last month that is his present. My older daughter loves Tinkerbell. She’s 29, but Tinkerbell is still her favorite character. Last year I got her Tinkerbell seat covers for her old Jeep. This year I got her a Tinkerbell ornament with light-up wings and a Tinkerbell windshield cover for her celica. There are other things, of course, but those will be her favorites, I’m sure. She wanted us to get her a new driver’s seat the last time we were at the junkyard, but we couldn’t find anything suitable. Next time we go, we will take her and she can pick something out that she thinks will go with her car. She currently has black leather seats, but forget the leather at the junkyard. Her celica needs new brakes, rotors, and hoses, but I don’t think Santa is bringing those for Christmas. I think the parts store will have to deliver those.
My younger daughter, having just bought her first car, is easier to buy for. She wants everything! So, first is floor mats for her celica. Next it’s wheel covers. Her car only has 3 right now and she wants 4, with a different pattern. Then there’s new windshield wipers because hers don’t do a very good job, and now there’s new headlight bulbs because her current ones are too dim to really see anything at night. She wants seat covers and a new radio. Her current radio no longer accepts CDs and the tape player no longer will play tapes. The radio part works because of the arrow antenna we put in, so she’s ok for now with at least SOME noise coming out of the dash. The radio doesn’t have an MP3 jack, so no more MP3 songs, either. I’m sure the list would be longer, but I stopped listening. Of course, Santa is not going to be bringing all of those things for Christmas. After all, we do have to have ideas for her birthday in April.
I also have an older celica that needs lots of things. A new set of seats from the junkyard that have to be scrubbed and repaired before using. Believe it or not, they are a DEFINITE improvement over what is currently in the car. New door panels from the junkyard, a new sunroof from the junkyard, lifters for the back hatch (from the junkyard), and miscellaneous engine parts and hoses. There is still a long list of things that I want done or fixed, but that can wait for another time. So I got my Christmas present already, too.
We don’t even need to think past the cars for presents! How convenient! So you see, Christmas is for the cars. No clothes, no kitchen things, no RC helicopters, no flat screen TV, no X-Box or games — just car things. It makes buying presents sooo much easier! Aren’t cars fun?
Merry Christmas everyone!
