Race Cars

Race car

Every time Caroline sees a pizza delivery car with the light-up sign on the roof, she points excitedly and says, “Look, Mommy: a race car!”  It just so happens that there’s a pizza place that shares a parking lot with her preschool, so on any given day, there are as many as three “race cars” in the school parking lot at one time.  It’s VERY exciting for my little girl.

Her excitement is so darned cute, I don’t have the heart to tell her those aren’t race cars – and frankly I have no idea if she even knows what a race car is, so perhaps it’s not really worth the explanation.  Plus, I find it so funny every time she says it, especially because the majority of “race cars” that we see are actually older-model family sedans.  One, in particular, is a Buick that has to have at least 150K miles on it.

Now that I think of it, I wonder if those old beat-up (stinky pizza-smelling) cars feel a little better when they see my girl coming, knowing somebody thinks they’re impressive…  Everyone should have at least one fan, after all.
