Cooper Wants a Car

Most of us have always been happy to be chauffered around by Mom & Dad.  But, since Cooper came to live with us, he's been whining about wanting a car of his own.  We think it began when he started seeing all these Coopers and Mini Coopers around here.  He just got it in his head that if there was a car with his name on it, then he should have one.  He said something about "destiny."  Anyway, he and Dad went looking at cars the other day, but when he finally got his paws on a Cooper, he decided that they just weren't cool enough for him - what happened to "destiny?"  He also claims they don't have enough "leg" room. Whatever.

How can I squeeze all these muscles in that tiny car, I ask you?

Anyway, he decided that, being a muscular guy, he wanted a "muscle machine" - that's what he called it.  We thought he was talking about Dad's workout bench with the weights and um, dust, hehe.  But, he was talking about a cool car.  And then, he spied it  -

Cooper's Dream Car

Dad says he thinks this has a little too much under the hood for Cooper, but Cooper is pretty adamant that he can handle it.  We'll just have to see if he can wear Dad down.

Please, Dad, can I, huh, pul-eeze?

Hey - we have wheels. Ok, we have to pull it with our harnesses and ganglines, but we still have wheels.

Heehee. Mom had a MINI Cooper, and took it out on the track (really), and her instructor was 6'11. And when Mom first saw him, she didn't think he would fit in the car, but it turned out that the guy owed a MINI, and fit in it just fine. So don't let your Dad talk you out of a Mini just because he doesn't think he'll fit! They are deceptively big inside! As for the muscle car, you've got Mom drooling!!! And tell your Dad not to worry - too much horsepower is almost enough... (Hey, Abby and I go to car races all the time - we know what we're talking about!) Keep working on him - you'll wear him down eventually! And when you do, Mom wants a ride (although if Cooper is driving, she'll probably bring along her helmet!)!!!

cooper, i don't think that muscle car is too much to ask for! i can understand about the leg room, although i do not have long legs at all.
