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.
