I blogged about my new Honda Fit earlier this summer. Given that I've seen so few Fits in the Durham area, I felt very pleased that I was the only one on my block with a Fit, and an orange one at that.
When Liz and I left the Carolina Theater recently, we walked to the side street where I'd parked the car. (As the offical "new car" in the family, the Fit is the default go-in vehicle for errands and trips.) As we walked, Liz thought she saw a Scion, also orange, parked across the street.
But no--parked directly across the street from my orange Fit was another orange Fit. WTF?!? I thought I was the only one with an orange Fit in Durham! It was spooky, let me tell you. And that neat feeling of being the only kid on the block with a new toy faded quickly away.
