Hello Maggie my old friend. . .
. . . I've come to drive with you again! Today I picked Maggie up from the hospital and I'm so happy to have her back. Yesterday I took her in for her regular maintenance service. She was having a slight malfunction with her hill assist feature, however, so they had to check her in and keep her for the night while they fixed it. In the meantime, they gave me a rental car (because MINIs are so in demand that they didn't have enough to give me a MINI loaner). It was a 2007 Ford Escape. That's really not a bad rental car. But, it's not a MINI. A MINI is no ordinary car. The Escape didn't treat me poorly. I have nothing bad to say about it. But, in the end, nothing compares to Maggie. I was so happy to pick her up tonight. And they bathed her, so she was nice and shiny. She's doing just fine now and is very happy to be home. The one problem I've discovered with MINIs is this: Once you have a MINI, everything else is a disappointment!
Welcome home, Maggie!
