I am ready.
Ready to go out for the evening and hang out wifh friends. I have my car, a purple PT Cruiser, all souped up and ready for the showing. Think I've done a pretty good job in making it according to my specifications. Fancy rims on the tires. A sound system to die for. Low bucket seats with plenty of leg room. Tinted windows. A leopard steering wheel cover. Yeah, baby, my machine is fit for a king!
I have been driving for two years, since I was fourteen. My older brother Jaime taught me. Now that I am sixteen, I think I am a pretty good driver: tht is, I watch all my p's and q's while on the road: no texting or talking on my cell; gotta keep my eyes and mind focused on the road at all times.
Besides, if I wrecked the Grape Ape (what I named my car), my mami and papi would probably disown me. They were the ones who gave me the car last year for my birthday. Great present, huh? (My birthday is on July 4; I'll be 17 this year.) I take great pride in my baby: I keep her gassed up, oiled, and check all her fluids, to make sure she is purring like a kitten, and I pay the insurance every month.
To pay for the car, I work two jobs. Work during the week at the movie house in the evenings (from 3 to 9); then on the weekends, I work at Pizza Hut, where I help cook the pizzas. Am off today; that is why I am going to go cruisin' with my friends.
As you can tell, I love tinkering with my car. It's what brings me the greatest joy (that and working). I have to take care of my car, but I also have to take care of my familia. My papi is disabled; he cannot work again, and mami, she stays home and takes care of him. My oldest sister takes care of the little rugrats while I am off work; then on my days off, I watch the rugrats for her (excepting for tonight: Whitney knows I have been planning this getaway for weeks).
When I grow up, you can probably figure out what I wanna do in life. Yep. You guessed right: I wanna go to school and become an auto mechanic. Anything to do with cars would make me happy! :) Or maybe I'd like to refurbish old cars and make them purr again or look better than ever. Yeah, that would be the life I'd love to have!
Well, I gotta go: Slim just called; he's ready to come over; then when he comes, he and I will be out on the prowl, looking for pretty girls and showing off the Grape Ape! :) Take care and talk to you soon! :)
