My First Ride #Flashfiction #gas #car
Seems like yesterday
March 1st 2025 when I bought
my first two-seater shopping cart vehicle for $5000
It sure beat traditional automobiles;
gas had gotten up to $1200 for a fill up. My parents parked our SUV and lived in it.
shucks a bag of groceries was $1000 for bread,, milk, cheese, and a pound of hamburger
you had to economize back then.
my best girl loved getting tangled in the wire baskets in the back seat.
oh the memories of being young and in love
now we have a family sedan with heated handlebars. Dog gone if they didn’t convert fuel from corn oil to turkey manure.
The prompt of the shopping cart vehicles comes from Friday Fictioneers
