Freewrite Day 501 Minivan

in esteem •  19 days ago


Even though the prompt for today is mini van, both I and duckduckgo think this is one word – minivan, so this is what I have to go with or my ocd will be set off.

So, what do I know, or think about minivans? Not much. I think it was a “mom car” back in the 1980’s. If you drove one you were a nerd. You got it because you had kids and sports equipment to drive around.

Minivan’s got taken over by SUV’s. Those I remember. I do not know what year it was, but all of the sudden these big cars (or trucks) were on the road. I lived in a Navy town and started seeing them everywhere on the roads.

This was a surprise to me since I thought we were having a gas crisis and that cars were supposed to get more efficient. Well, a lot of big suv’s with one person in them was not too planet-friendly.

I remember having to look around them as I drove in my little car. I didn’t have any reason to get a big van or suv since I barely drove much anyway.

Do we still have minivans? I do not know. I have no vehicles on my radar screen except for public transportation. And now in SE Asia, all the brands and types are different than I was used to in California. We have a lot more motorcycles here.

As long as none of them hits me while I walk on the side of the road, it’s all good.

My post is for the #freewrite daily challenge by @mariannewest. Freewrite is a great way to post on steemit when you do not think you have the time, or talent, or anything to say. It’s a great way to start regular posting on steemit. I know you can do this too! Here is Marianne’s freewrite prompt post for today. Give it a try and surprise yourself.

Well done Sharon @fitinfun, I remember the transition from
VANS to Mini vans to SUV's...I'm an old fart.


lol - You and me both! I think about 5% of the people driving them actually need a car that size :)

It seems like I woke up one day and the world was full of those SUV's, the gas guzzlers. Watch out for those motorcycles. : )

Thank you! I am on both of those and very thankful for your reminder :)

I will be careful. Luckily we have smaller vehicles here, and people look out for pedestrians.
