Pierism #1

6 Sep

I often tell my friends this anecdote about my father, who is simultaneously these three things:  man, child, and legend.

In the early 2000s, his midlife crisis car was a silver VW Beetle.  He’s 6’4″.

Evidently, it was the only practical car on the market with enough head room.  And, he untiringly explained to everyone who commented that he really could fit into that little beetle better than any car he’s ever been in.  And folks, he was actually right, because just as untiringly, he clambered his long limbs into that low, low car with the seat pushed all the way back.  Once he got in there, those legs and head had more wiggle room than they’d ever experienced.
