The human equivalent of a Honda Accord

The dude next to the dude trying to get my friend’s phone number at happy hour last night guessed just looking at me that I drive a Honda Accord. My husband thinks he saw me park my car. But this guy came into the bar way after us. What’d he do? Watch me park and then linger in the parking lot for 30 minutes just to throw me off his trail? Not to mention, was he lingering in Wonder Woman's invisible car? Because the parking lot was empty when I got there.

I think he just flat out guessed. And I think that means I look like the sort of girl that drives a Honda Accord. My husband does not see the problem. He thinks it makes perfect sense that I look like a Honda Accord driving girl since I am in fact a Honda Accord driving girl. I pointed out how being mistaken for a convertible driving girl makes it seem like you’re fun-loving and a Jaguar driving girl might look sleek and refined. Only I’m a Honda Accord. Practical and nice but sort of unobtrusive. And my car seat covers come off so you can wash them. I’m starting to think I need to reevaluate my life.

Honda Accords are great cars! I've owned several. What do you care what some jackass you never met thinks? Bleagh. As if he is the dispenser of all wisdom.

I'm thinking it's much better than being the human equivalent of, say, a Chevette. Or a minivan.

At least he didn't guess you were driving a minvan!

witchy - This is my 2nd Honda. They really are great cars. And I picked out my car myself. I really like it. Even when my husband offered to let me drive his 4 Runner I stuck with my Accord. It's just odd being associated with one just by looking at me. But you're completely right I shouldn't care what some random dude said.

ree - Dude, just the thought of being told I look like I drive a Chevette puts it all in perspective.

christy - Very true!

sarbear and leigh - Thanks!
