Object of my Affection

Thanks Joy for tagging me this time. This is one such tag, which gets a lot of ideas to the silly mind. Though it was all composed long before, it just took this long to come out.
The object of my affection is our car. She was hubby's first and was taken care off like a princess. I took my driving lessons with her. She accompanied me to interviews when i was jobless. She took me to work and back home. Be it the rainy, windy, snowy chicago she withstood them all. Every doctor visit be it ultrasound or just checkup was with her. She kept telling me all will be well. She took the pride of getting our first baby home. She with utmost happiness gave her princess crown to the little new comer then. She took her to the best of places and gave her the best of times to see the little giggle and smile on her face. She with all smiles brought the second baby home and tried to calm the quarrels. She meant so much more and today when attaching a price tag to her i felt bad. She is priceless and our very first princess. She is changing owners today and i just wish her luck....Here she is with pride

She is just going to be eight years old this september and her achievements are huge.
And now i tag a few more to express their affections and that will be :
Akshatha Kamath,
Poppins mom,
and anybody who likes to do one.


  1. Thanks for the tag ! I'm off tags right now, but will certainly do it if i get a chance. Please don't mind!

    You're a new blogger! Well see you around:)

  2. this pos took me back to our fiat when we were little. for some reason i was very attached to te car...

    *She meant so much more and today when attaching a price tag to her i felt bad. *...i sort of understand how u feel..

    as for good news? really sumana, at my age? :D

  3. lovely post.. oh yes car is such a prized possession isn't it.. and 8 years. wow!!

  4. :) I can understand. Strangely, it was not me who was possesive of cars. My dad used to love our first Ambassador car and would call it his daughter!!! and years later, when I got married, H used to like his first car, maybe because of so many experiences he had with it. Even after few years of giving it away, his eyes still brightens up when he sees the same model in the road and tries to figure out whether it was the same old car.

    Thanks for doing the tag. Really nice.
