I drove on a “spare” tiny donut tire an entire Iowa winter. Circa ‘90-‘91. I drove all the tread off of it. People were alarmed. They would see me pull into work again tonight on that little thing and they couldn’t believe it.
This tireless (i know, i’m not so good at these) piece of rubber was mounted on a Mercury Bobcat, the glamourous version of the Ford Pinto. (I hope I got my models right.) I was in love with a girl when I had that kind of machinery. I was IN love with THE girl during this madness. I see kids today that say they can’t do this or that until this or that falls into place and I remember times like this. I was probably just shy of 6 ft tall and weighed a whopping 130 lbs. I had the original Jerry Seinfeld “do” or what I hoped looked like it and I felt like I invented p***y. Just a man and his machine.
Oops…was that out loud? This stream is flooded and raging out of control.
I’m sure I like the music from these days so much because it reminds of all the other good things from those days.
**** said that if the tape played through again she was gonna stop. (!)
