A Letter to a Friend...
Dear Driver's Side Hubcap,
Where did you go?
I was under the assumption that our arrangement was binding and for you to just take off without proper notification leaves me amiss.
I miss you, Driver's Side Hubcap. Think of the memories we shared.
The road trip to New York City.
The four different proms we attended.
The casual drives through Berne, Indiana. For no reason, whatsoever.
Sure, life together wasn't always as bright as rainbow sherbet.
The winter of '03. You remember the winter of '03, right? Yeeeaaahh, you do. We got up close and personal with each other during that time. How many times did we get stuck in a ditch? 3? 4? 8? But that's ok, Driver's Side Hubcap; even though you're extremely small in stature, and not intended for off road winter action, we still made the most of it.
You're sorely missed. Without you, Driver's Side Back Seat Hubcap is all alone. Don't even get me started on Passenger Side Hubcap. She's thinking about taking a leave of absence to grieve. Without you, we are incomplete and asymmetrical. And if you step far enough away from the car, she looks like she's winking at you.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, come home. Without you, Driver's Side Wheel is just plain tired.
