we met this guy named larry at the party.
before we met him, we saw him driving out along the roads in his little red smartcar, or as i am about to explain to you, his smart.
some days into the party in response to me saying something about his smartcar, larry said he doesn't drive a smartcar.
now i was all confused.
because if it's not a smartcar, what is it? are there more brands of those than i knew about?
it turns out it's just called a smart.
it's a matter of language and a matter of etiquette, apparently.
"you don't drive a subarucar, do you?" larry asks me.
well, no. but i am still confused.
nobody you know drives a toyotacar or a fordcar or a volkwagoncar.
it's a smart.
it is cute and red and holds a lot more gear than one might expect, plus larry is able to drive it on some back roads that might give you pause.
well, you learn somethin' every day.
