Meet mid-life me...and my new car. A gorgeous white Nissan Altima 2.5S Coupe.
After months of research, a firm and final budget, and a shortlist of about 6 vehicles to check out, I drove this one and in 20 minutes I just knew. The dealer asked how it felt to drive. My answer? "It feels like.....YOUTH!"
My texts to friends and family were going fast and furious on Saturday as I spent 4 hours at the dealer making the deal, doing the paperwork, and finally driving away with hardly a backward glance to my steady, dependable, 2002 Ford Escape. On Sunday I left hubby at home and said I was running to drug store (at end of block) and maybe for a short ride to get the feel of the new car.
I came home two hours later after just wandering the Hudson Valley and relying on my GPS to get me home again. I have NO buyer's remorse, but I do feel myself blush a little each time someone asks me what I bought and I think of the little white sportscar in my parking spot.
But what the hell, right? You only life mid-life once.
