I know. I know. “WHERE is Switzerland?!?!” Oh I can hear you. Never fear, posts are coming, but I am waiting for pictures to arrive from one fellow traveling companion so I have a full set from which to choose for this forum. It is important to select only the finest quality so your oooohs and ahhhhs are maximized.
In the mean time, I give you a post about my “new” car. Sure, I bought it in February, but it still feels new to me – having not owned a vehicle in 9 out of the last 10 years. It’s super fun and I haven’t even taken it all apart yet. Since my bike, as you know, is “Skinny B,” I named the Wrangler, “Big B.” They are the same color, exactly, so I’m dealing with the same baby daddy at least.
Occasionally when I pass car kindred on the road, I’ll get the steering-wheel-grip-finger-wave/slight-head-nod gesture. At first I thought it was just everyone being southern and neighborly, but it was always folks in Wranglers. Then I learned of the “Wrangler Wave” (unofficial title). Apparently, Wrangler owners wave to each other. To me it simply says, “Hey, looks like you’re cool, too.”
So now I relish being part of the in-crowd. I Wrangler Wave like I invented it, baby. At least now I know to expect it, instead of being caught off guard and clueless while picking my nose or some other solo car behavior, like digging for CDs or wedgies. Yes, yes, I’m cool, too. I swear.
