Someone just drove by me in my identical (16 year old) car, down to the limited edition paint color. Even though I’d JUST stepped out of my own car, I caught myself looking at their license plate to be sure.
(Of course, their car hadn’t been repainted a random, newly-invented color by the shitheads at Maaco like mine was. Yes, I’m still bitter. And yes, I still mentally picture my own car in its original color. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been confused.)
(And holy smokes, I just realized that my car is old enough to get a drivers license. I mean, that is, well you know what I mean.)
