However, with three minions (which as of December, will ALL be in double digits), micromachines are not practical. We talked about blah, blah, blah topics of vehicles, then spouse said, "We should just buy a short bus. Then, the kids can get to school by riding the short bus."
I suggested perhaps I paint it black with hot pink flames. Now that I'm thinking about it- hot pink glittery flames. Spouse said no way he'd ride in a short bus with pink flames. He suggested Green. Ba-lah.
I am, however, one with compromise. I'm such a loving spouse that way. I suggested we do away with the black, and just paint it hot pink with green flames. Or, we could even go so far as to painting it green with pink flames if he preferred.
I thought that might be a little gaudy, though, and we wouldn't want that, now would we?
So as soon as we got home, I started to check around. I'm surprised at how many pink buses there are out there. I'd hardly be original if I had just a plain pink bus. Everyone apparently has one. Don't think so? Check google. I'll wait.
See? Tons of pink buses.
I did find a few winners, though. I'm debating which we should purchase. What are your thoughts?
I think we should trick out the inside. This seems reasonable to me:
How bad ass would it be to have a family vehicle that doubles as the local party bus?
These are my top choices right now- what is your vote? I really like how this first one doesn't have doors. We could slide in Bo & Luke Duke style. Just get us a ladder first.
Perhaps green with pink flames is the way to go. Hmm...
And if we pitted the Pink Flaming Bus against Spouse's Micromachine in a fight to the death, the bus would totally win. I'd trick it out with metal spikes, and a big sharp toothy grin on the front where the grill is. I'd be the most bad ass Mommy in the car pool lane. The other Mommy's would run.
So, I've had an epiphany. <---that's a kick ass word right there. Epiphany. Oh, shit. Off topic. All right, back to my epiphany. One day, I plan to be rich. Probably not famous- cause I don't think the paparazzi could handle me.
When I'm rich, I'm going to buy a fleet of short buses, and have them tricked out all custom and shit. They're all going to be lime green with hot pink glittery flames. They'll gave the name on the front and sides, just like a real school bus, but it will say:
And then, people can rent them, and be driven around on bar hops. Mostly me and my friends (and family). Lots of drunks hoping out of a lime green school bus will elicit a lot of looks. So I guess the paparazzi are bound to start following the bus.
Spouse said, "Why not a limo?" Why not? Because they're too classy for me. Even if we're rich, our white trash is bound to show, so why hide it behind blah-black limos? Unless it's hot pink. With glitter racing stripes down it. And says "Sand Crotch Micromachine" across the back of it.
Maybe I can send one to Lindsey Lohan to sponsor. She's classy.
This is a multibillion dollar idea, and if you steal it, I will cut you! I have a chalk shiv, so I mean business!
