If wishes were parking slots...

Any parking slot that I was trying to wedge my Range Rover into would obligingly swivel itself on a turntable until it was at the right angle for me to just drive straight in without having to do any angling manouevres. Also, MY slot would expand sideways to accommodate my car comfortably, should any vehicle on either side be parked too close to the line.

You think that's off-the-wall far-fetched? Well, think about this - apparently one of the Ecclestone daughters has, in her $45 million house, a car turntable so that she does not need to reverse her Ferrari out of the driveway.

I was only expanding on an already existing reality. Not so far-fetched NOW, is it? Hah!

Oh to be a multi-multimillionaire, just to experience the extravagances in that ridiculously rarefied lifestyle...

MiM, I will arrange to have a detangler and replaiter delivered to you the minute I win a few lottery millions :) AND the bonus? She will keep mum about her work... HAHAHAHAHA!

Shammi - Oooh I share the sentiment. I am that person who will park right at the other end of the Parking Lot just to avoid let alone reverse parking - but reversing the car out!!!

MiM - Used to have hair like that - till I "accidentally" got tar on it and had to chop a good length off - and have never let it grow again despite all my mom's entreaties!!!

parking rage always reminds me of that scene from fried green tomatoes.. when kathy bates gets beaten to a coveted spot b a 20 something wit a smirky 'face it lady, I'm faster'. the next time it happens she totals the kids VW bug with the retort 'Face it, I have more insurance'

exactly how do you get tar on your hair, "accidentally" of course
