I’ll Get You My Pretty and Your Little Jeep, Too!
A few weeks ago, it was confirmed for me that people are much like their vehicles. Wifey drives a Jeep. I find it hilarious that Jeep people have a specific language, all of their own! Visualize this…
– Contact has been made with another Jeep
– The hand does not leave the steering wheel
– A mere two fingers are slightly raised
– A bit of a head nod occurs
What is that!? This cool and subtle connection can hardly be noticed by the other driver! I laugh every time Wifey participates in this secret Jeep language. Now, let’s talk about some Mini Cooper love…
Now, this is when Roda became a little naughty…
Wifey appeared excited that I would be driving her precious Jeep, so I didn’t think twice about it, until I remembered the ridiculous Jeep greeting! Ugh! I did not want to ruin Wifey’s reputation with the Jeep community, so I excepted the fact that if I came across another Jeep, I should probably follow the Jeep Language Protocol.
Within a few miles, I noticed a Jeep approaching. I participated in the slight nod and hand movement. I tried to not make eye contact and gazed ahead, with a very serious tone. Then, I instantly lost it, laughing so hard I almost wet myself! ( I am 45 and have had three babies…it is not difficult to do!) Considering it was about a 20 minute drive home, I knew I would pass by another Jeep.
I was about to turn left and there was a shiny black Jeep, at the stop sign, pulling out to turn right. He and is very cool James Bond like attitude, gave me the official Jeep greeting. What did I do? Well…I went full-out Mini Cooper happiness on him! I waved with both hands, smiled and continued this perkiness as I turn the corner. He looked at me like I was certifiable! I felt such joy!
There was only one slight issue… Wifey had been following behind me, in the little Ford Fusion, the entire time… She witnessed the whole event! I could already hear in my head, “Roda… You have some explaining to do…”.
Within a few miles, I pulled in the driveway and took my time departing from the Jeep. Wifey was instantly waiting by the door. The first words out of her mouth were, “You can’t handle the Jeep!” Followed by, “No Jeep for you….EVER!” She turned and walked into the house. I was trying not to laugh, but I couldn’t help it. I don’t think I ruined Wifey’s Jeep reputation whatsoever! I just think I added a little Joy to it!
Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
