First, I would like to say that personally I have nothing against the color yellow or Mustangs, but this is starting to get downright bizarre. I am writing this today because the cars have begun to invade my workplace.
It all started last May or June with my daughter talking about cars and how she would like a yellow one. Within a week the attack of the yellow Mustangs had begun. I would go out to the grocery and I would see 3 or 4 in less than a mile. I live near a Ford dealership, but during this whole time (5+ months) I have not seen one yellow one there (go figure). I go out on the road and they seem to multiply like rabbits.
I go to the mall (3 miles), 5 or 6 yellow Mustangs. I go into Indianapolis and it gets worse. I might even see ten or more driving the 80 miles to where my daughter goes to college. It makes me want to scream. One day in an hour or two of driving my son and I counted over 15 and we never made it more than a 5 mile radius from the house. It wouldn’t be so bad, if it were not for the fact that they are all the same color regardless of model year and appear to stretch out over a 15-20 year period. No deviation. None. Nada. Where I live one of the residents has one so I normally discount it, but today another one showed up and that one was number five for the day, all of them over my lunch break. Where will it end? Does anyone have any ideas? Anyone?!?
I wonder if someone is trying to tell me something. For the life of me, though, I cannot figure out what multiplying, yellow Mustangs have to do with anything in my life other than my daughter. But for her I think it wouldn’t matter the car. We drove past a yellow Corvette and she said, "I’ll take that one."
I would too, honey. I would too, especially if it would rid me of the plague of the yellow Mustangs before they invade my dreams. That, I believe, would drive me crazy.
