Parking Lot Pics

It feels rather pathetic to me the number of posts that revolve around the supermarket.  And yet while I wait to hear about news on the employment front (which, by the way, is looking fairly promising), my horizons otherwise these days have been fairly limited.  But you take inspiration where you find it, right?

Most dogs like nothing better than sitting in the front seat of the car.  I mean, who wouldn't want to ride with one's head out the window?  This dog was waiting patiently in the parking lot for its owner to return.  The sight just cracked me up.  All this dog needed was a crossword puzzle or the sound of NPR from the car radio to complete the portrait of the long suffering companion.

If you followed my Paris blog, you know how much I adore Smart cars.  They've made their appearance on the American scene (to some pretty scathing reviews about their driving performance) and yet to me, still seem a bit out of place.  The Smart is like no other car when it comes to parallel parking (a skill you must have if you live in DC) thus its appearance in this suburban supermarket parking lot is somewhat incongruous. What's more, that gold car next to it is probably considered a compact, small by American standards.

  1. Glad to hear that things look promising on the job front!

    I love Smart cars in Europe, but there's no way that I would drive one in the States. My imagination is too vivid. I would always be thinking about what would happen if I had a close encounter with a Hummer.
