If only premium gas wasn't so delicious

Once upon a time there was a shy green Volkswagen named Heltrude.

Heltrude loved driving to beaches and parks, but lately her friends noticed she seemed a bit sad.

"What's wrong?"  Asked her friend Gunther, a Ford Explorer.

"Gas is so expensive that I had to go on a diet.  I've already lost eight gallons."

Awe, poor Heltrude. Maybe she and Gunther can just park at the beach each evening. ;P

Hahahaha - I'm wishing my car, Hobbes, would go on a diet. He's such a glutton!

Janna said...

g-man: The German thing was just for the heck of it, to see if anyone would notice. :)

Brian: It goes very fast indeed. (!)

Linc: Maybe for Heltrude, E85 is comfort food!

Teresa: Thanks for visiting!

MamaZen: It would be funny if there was sort of "Meals On Wheels" program for starving cars. Ha! :) Get it? 'Cuz they're already on wheels to begin with...

OtherMary: I like the name Hobbes because it reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes! :)
