about this story

My first car was a White 2000 Plymouth Breeze with power windows and power seats. I named her Tallulah, one of the suggested names of the bobsled in the movie Cool Runnings. I was happy to get my first car and just to think I talked the guy down from $1,500 to $900. I was a great negotiator at the age of 16. Much to my chagrin, the car was trash, a dud, a lemon. It broke down on me less than 20 minutes after I left the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). And because I didn't have a cell phone I was on the side of the road hoping someone would come get me. Instead I had to walk home. That Route 5 walk to Varina still haunts me. Come to find out it was a blown head gasket that I couldn't afford to fix. Couldn't believe I had my first car for less than one day. And until I turned 21 years old I either walked, took public transportation, or rode with someone everywhere I went. R.I.P. Tallulah.
