i'm trying to remember the last time i washed my car. my car is white, so it gets dirty when the wind blows. and i've completely neglected to show my car some wash, wax, and shine love.
i remember back in the day. when i was younger. washing the car was a whole day activity. i'd get up. get dressed, just to walk out into my driveway, strip down to a pair of basketball shorts and put on a show for the neighborhood ladies. yes...washing my car was like porn in the driveway for the ladies. they'd come out, strike up conversation. act like they were checking their mail. just stand in the middle of the lawn like a garden gnome. those were the days. now if i attempted to do that today...the ladies would run back in the house, draw the curtains, cover their kids eyes, and probably run outside with a blanket for me to cover up.
yes, i could still make driveway porn..it would probably have a special category "out-of-shape midget" porn. needless to say, the days of me standing outside half clothed, muscles/abs glistening, suds & water all over me are over. pretty much cause my muscles/abs are in hibernation, they'll be back tho, soon. maybe.
so i guess my question now is.."who washes their cars themselves anymore?" what happen to those days where you showed you car some "self love". most people, either don't wash their car, take it through a car wash, pay someone else, or wait to get a courtesy wash at the dealership. no one physically washes their car anymore. what's up with that? i never see anyone washing their car in their driveway. i don't even see little kids washing their parents car. or the football team at the high school doing it to raise money.
the self serve car wash is vacant like a ghost town. no more are the blaring radios and guys blocking the vacuum machines for 2 hours while they clean and shine their rims & tires. no more is there a line at the "change machine" of people complaining the machine only gave them 3 quarters. or the old cranky man walking around making sure you're not filling a bucket with water to prevent adding .25 cents every 2 minutes so you can add 30secs. to stop the water from running out and having to pay $2.50 to start it back up from the start. we'd rather pay our amigos down at the car wash, the brothers in the parking lot of a restaurant/gas station with their "mobile detail" cars, or the companies charging crazy stupid amounts to wash & spray the same shit you could buy at walmart for $1.35. what has happened to us people?
we got to get back to porn in our driveways. i command you all to go out and wash your cars this week. go make love to your car &wash it down...
