Sometimes I ask strange questions.

“Would you drive a pink car?” I asked my boss on the way to work.

“I don’t think so,” he replied, after thinking for a while.

“But have you ever seen a pink car?” I pressed. I hadn’t.

“Yes, I believe I have,” he said. “It was a pink SUV.”

I tried very hard to imagine a pink SUV, but couldn’t. There are times when your imagination fails you, and this was one of them.

As if in answer to my question, we spotted a pink sedan not long after. It was one of those ‘wow’ moments, and I assumed (wrongly as it turned out), that there weren’t many pink vehicles around.

We’ve run into a lot since then — more sedans, a huge SUV, and the topper, two pink fire trucks in tandem.

Only three more  things would make my year – a pink motorbike, a pink limousine and a pink helicopter or jet.

    LOL..I’ve seen the ones you listed and a pink limousine too. A pink bike, maybe but a pink jet? Maybe a Lear for Barbie, lol…

    lol… and a pink yacht?

      I keep my distance from water as much as possible — can’t swim. But for some reason, I don’t think I’d be that shocked to see a pink yacht.

    How about a pink armored tank?

    Wow, the first blog by a Nigerian that I’ve stumbled across that has nothing to say about Independence. Interesting.

    I have never seen a pink car! Perhaps it’s an America thing? When I was about 14, I really really really wanted a yellow car; a yellow jeep to be specific! I’ve changed my mind now 🙂
