Here is a little hint for all you car shoppers out there.
Wait, there are people buying cars out there, right? I’m not the only person who now owns a car she can’t trade in to save her life. Right?
Anyway. Assuming you are buying a car, here’s a little friendly tip. No, it’s not about gas mileage. I’m pretty sure you’re doing your research about that. You are aren’t you? Please do. Unless you have money to throw out the window. And if you do, please send it my way instead. I’ll use it to buy more gas.
But I digress. No, my tip is about leather.
Yes! Leather. You don’t think about the practicality of the seats when you’re buying a car. You think about how sexy it looks. You think about the coolio little dials and knobs. You think about cylinders and gears and stuff. Heck you even think about tires. But the leather is what you should really be pondering.
Because when it’s 99F outside, and you’re wearing shorts or a skirt, you are going to rue the day someone installed sexy, coolio, black leather in your brand new car. And you’re going to scrounge around in your trunk for a towel or a blanket or even a dirty t-shirt. And once your scorching leather is safely covered you’re going to realize you look ridiculous, but you’ll be trying too hard to keep your skin from melting off to do anything about it.
