The Prospect of a Sunroof

I was behind a beautiful Porsche Carrera yesterday. Stopped at a light. There was a father and son "team" inside. I saw the Dad's arm raise to open the sunroof. They spun around the corner, and Dad gave it some gas. He slowed down a bit, just enough for me to slide up next to him (yes, I was passing this Porsche!). They were laughing; ecstatic at the prospect of a sunny day, spring weather, and a sunroof.

Then Dad raised his arm again and closed the sunroof.

We are almost there. But not quite. We can smell it in the air. The birds are chirping, the snow is melting, and for once, I feel like doing SOMETHING.

We have a sun/moonroof on the WRX, and I did crack the sunroof portion last weekend. I can't wait to have all the windows down!

Welcome, spring!
