I know I am going to take some flack for this post, but what are you going to do. I am quite comfortable eating my own words here are a couple of highlights from my past.
1. "I will never live in Texas, ain't nutt'n but freaks and rednecks down there!!!" That statement was made in college, and I don't think that I have to remind everybody how this has ended up.
2. "I will never be like you!!!" This particular quote was directed at my dad when I was in high school, most likely because I had gotten in trouble for something and was mad about it. Now I am an assistant principal, and whistle in the hallways just like my dad.
3. "I will never drive a minivan" -- Thankfully I have been able to adhere to this one but just barely. Last weekend Sarah and I signed on the line for a 2005 Honda Pilot. Although it has much of the same functionality of a mini-van, it doesn't have the sliding doors (this is a big difference-once you go with the sliding doors it means you are officially just like your parents.) Here are the pics.
All in all we love the Pilot (which as mentioned in a previous post, was the vehicle for the Huddleston/Baker Road Trip Summer '07, and we were really comfortable with 4 adults, so we figured it would make a good family hauler.
