Test Drive

The sales consultant parked and we swapped places. I shifted the gear to D and accelerated, but nothing happened. The man said: “It’s quiet, but not that quiet.” Oops. I started the engine. And it was pretty much just that quiet. I bought the car.


When you see a woman finishing up some tasks at work in the evening, and she makes a quick Skype call to her man and young child to say that she’s coming home soon, and the child is happy to see his mum and blows her goodnight kisses, and he shows her his latest “Babar dance”, and she says goodnight and finishes the call and finishes her work, you know that’s what phone calls were always meant to be.
