Wordful Wednesday - My New Toy On Wheels

A little over two weeks ago I posted about showing up at a friend's country house for a bonfire. I went with intentions of hanging with friends, eating good food, and listening to music. I left with a muddy vehicle.

Once darkness fell upon us, several people took their mud trucks through a mud pit. Mind you, those vehicles were built just for offorading and mudding. Not one to be outdone, I threw my Trailblazer in 4-wheel drive and made a pass. And another pass, and another. It was an adrenaline rush!

The only downside: my vehicle is meant for everyday driving on regular streets. It's not made for going through five feet of mud and water. It's a wonder I didn't destroy it!

To top off the evening, my vehicle was covered top to bottom, inside and out, with mud. It was a glorious sight! When I got home, my husband didn't know whether to be proud of me or raise the roof with fury.
After hearing all the details several times from everybody and their dog, Jason decided the best bet would be to just purchase an actual vehicle that's meant for mud slingin'. So last night he and I picked up my new bad boy on wheels. It may not be the prettiest thing, but that's low on my list. As long as I can romp it through mud and dirt, I'll be giddy.
