Slice of Life -- Automotive Division

James: "So I saw the coolest thing at the grocery store!"

Ursula: "What was it?"

James: "It was restored and everything!"

Ursula: "What was?"

James: "The thing!"

Ursula: "What thing?"

James: "THE THING!"

Ursula: "...you mean the car?"*

James: "Yeah!"

Ursula: "You planned out just how you were going to phrase that, didn't you?"

James: "For the past two and a half hours, yes."




*Note for the younger generation--the VW Thing was a breed of car, now nearly extinct in the wild, vaguely resembling a cross between a jeep and a hypercube.
