“Give me fuel, give me fire, give me that which I desire!”
Those were the magic words I spoke, which caused my 2004 Honda Element to mysteriously morph into a 2017 Toyota 4Runner 4X4 Limited V6.
It’s like how Cinderella’s pumpkin turned into a wondrous carriage pulled by horses. Only way cooler.
So for the next nine days, until the clock strikes 11:30 AM on July 6th, I will get to be the proud driver of this undeniably tough (yet charming) machine of glory.
In the dozens of vehicles of featured on my blog over the years, my very favorite was the Toyota Tacoma. So obviously I have been looking forward for months now, knowing that a Toyota 4Runner was being delivered to me this week; as I find the two vehicles to be similar to each other.
This thing has the elegant look of a Storm Trooper, yet the unpredictable great power of Darth Vader.
Seriously, I am going to be so cool this week.
I’ve already had several co-workers stop me and tell me how jealous they are.
This 4Runner taps into a pocket of my psyche that I typically keep subdued on my blog.
After all, I’m the Family Friendly Daddy Blogger. Readers have certain demographic expectations of me:
Take lots of cute pictures of my kids while telling cute stories about them. Rinse and repeat.
And that’s what I will provide for my readers over the next week or so, as we enjoy some awesome upcoming adventures, being the Chip and Joanna Gaines kind of family that we truly are.
But this is me, breaking the 4th wall, to say, “I am a conservative husband and father living in the Suburbs… hear me roar!”
I suddenly feel so in control.
