Barbara writes of the type of car she would love to have.

Got this idea from seeing a yellow Hummer sitting in the library parking lot; BOY, is it EVER pretty! WOW! Like Barbara, I can't seem to take my eyes off it either! LOL This is how this story came to be! Stupid Hummer; it's so weird how I get my inspiration sometimes...

Yellow Hummers. Ah, yes, those Hummers. Big, wide, outragiously priced, square windows, loaded with extras that would make the average car owner jealous with envy, and impractical when it comes to gas mileage. But boy, would I EVER love to have a Hummer, especially a yellow one!

I saw a yellow Hummer today, and it was as though my eyes were glued to it; I couldn't get my eyes off it for one second! I would try to divert my eyes to another direction, but that stupid Hummer kept making my eyes gravitate towards it, like it was a huge, bright neon sign. It was like the truck/sports utility vehicle was calling my name, taunting me. It was saying something like "Barbara, take a gander at ME! I'm STYLIN'!"

Now, I have ridden in a Hummer before (you talk about one smooth ride!)--my friend Roberto has one, an orange Hummer--, and I was really impressed; ever since, I have wanted to have one of those Hummers for my own! Now, my oldest brother, Anh, wants a Hummer, too, but mom and dad keep shaking their heads and telling him that he is crazy for wanting one. I am sure that, if I told them I wanted a Hummer, too, they would probably, more 'n likely, say the very same thing. They think Hummers are UGLY ("They look too boxy" or "They look like military vehicles!" they keep saying), but no matter what THEY may think, I happen to think that Hummers are cool, as does my brother, Anh!

Now, ever since I saw that stupid yellow Hummer, I can't stop thinking about it or how cool it would be to have one. I am sure my boyfriend, Trent, would like it; he is into cars, and he likes cars like Hummers. He thinks they are "da BOMB", and he would also love to have one. When I told him I rode in a Hummer, he got mad; but then he started acting all jealous because I have ridden in a Hummer, and to my knowledge, he hasn't.

My mom thinks that all Hummers are ugly as sin, but she especially dislikes the yellow ones. She says they look like giant bananas with wheels, and my dad is usually inclined to agree with her. I see NOTHING at ALL ugly about Hummers, especially the yellow ones; I think the yellow ones are NEAT looking! Such a bright, cheery, vibrant color! Such power! Such LOOKS! WOW, but I really would love to get my hands on one of those BABIES, especially the yellow ones! I don't know why my parents don't like Hummers, but I would MUCH rather have a Hummer than one of those stupid VANS or "practical" cars ANY day! Give me a Hummer, especially a YELLOW one, and I'd be the happiest person this side of the Mississippi!

I'm still laughing at Ed's write. Never been in a hummer but it must be something considering how much it costs almost 50 grand. I'll take a Corvette any day but my chances of owning one are zero right now.
We can always continue to dream and one day the dream may come true. Get on the Price Is Right and win a hummer.
Love
George

great write, loved reading it!

AH, A LOVE OF HUMMERS,
OH, WHAT A BUMMER,
THEIR COST SO PROHIBITIVE,
THAT ONLY THOSE CONSIDERED TO BE STRUMMERS,
CAN ONLY APPROACH TO TAKE A LOOK,
RIDING IN ONE CAN CERTAINLY JUST MAKE ONE JEALOUS,
WHAT CAN YOU DO, CANNOT AFFORD ONE,
SO HAVE TO TAKE THIS CUE,
BUY A jEEP, PAINT IT YELLOW AND CALL IT "HUMMER",
THAT IS ABOUT ALL YOU CAN DO...

Patience is a virtue, one day you will have what it is you want,
although it may be not what you want and when...ED & Rufuz

YUMMERS, no tag backs (also all the other HUMMERS driving around LOL)

i love HUMMERS--so cool looking--if money were no object, you bet i'd have one :) *i prefer harvest orange, but of COURSE they stopped making that color, knowing i love it so well LOL)

continue to dream...continue to write--maybe we'll get so rich we can own a whole fleet of HUMMERS (instead of the little matchbox sized ones we currently own)

adored this write, and i adore you

(((((HUGS))))) and love, karla. :)
