Dear mildly attractive college student,
As I was checking out your Titanium gray Mazda3s sedan all the way down 5th Avenue, I thought to myself, "Hey! Cool people drive Mazda3's! I drive a Mazda3!" Much to my dismay, you were not all that cool. Your car was. Your Chico State license plate frame was. The way your Stubby antennae glistened in the sunlight was most definitely cool, and for a second, thought you might be a board member. (If you are, promptly identify yourself so I may issue an apology and offer dinner and a movie.)
Which leads me to writing this letter to you, mildly attractive college student. Your left turn onto The Esplanade from 5th Av., was daring, at the least. The Acura TL you cut off, undoubtedly a doctor returning from his affairs at the hospital at that very street corner, didn't look pleased. I'm sure he wasn't too offended, though, since the beauty of your economy automobile offset the traffic signal discrepancy.
Since The Esplanade is two lanes, I had my chance to catch up to you and see more than your vehicle's rump. However, on a thoroughfare where the speed limit is set at 25, travelling at mind-numbing speeds up to 50 is generally frowned upon by our local constable. I, however, took my chances in the name of all that is good and reasonable and caught you at the intersection at 1st Av. and The Esplanade. We exchanged glances, and I'm sure you didn't think twice because I was in the BMW. Little to your knowledge, we already had a common bond and were destined for MUCH more than just a simple traffic encounter. You drove that cute little Titanium Gray 3s with a Stubby like you stole the motherfucker. It wouldn't be out of line to assume that you, mildly attractive college student, do not shell out a few Washingtons on your car's behalf.
Quick! The light turned green! Onward for more of our journey southbound on the local boulevard. We proceed at normal speeds. I look in my sideview mirror and still like how a BMW and Mazda3 look next to each other. For I see this image every night in my own garage, but it never gets old.
Wait a tick, what is this? A flashing side marker? This generally indicates that one is considering changing la.... OH SHIT. *horn*
What is this nonsense, mildly attractive college student? You are now the reason I cannot kiss my mother with my filthy mouth. I should never have to scream "Dumb ho!" at another Mazda3. Ever! Blasphemy!
After your journey to the end of common sense and back, you turned right onto Lincoln Av., which, if the traffic coming straight at you didn't tip you off, is a one way street. That was the last I ever saw of you, my dear.
This disappoints me, mildly attractive college student. We had something special. We broke the law together all the way between 5th Av. and 1st Av. We probably would've gotten married, parked our 3's next to each other, and had little baby Mazda2's. Or something.
I suppose it was never meant to be.
Sky. (The moderately attractive, inappropriately dressed college boy in the convertible BMW..)
