2010 GMC Terrain: Damned Sunflower Seeds
November 04, 2010
So I'm driving our long-term Terrain this morning after dropping off a portable hard-drive at a friend's house. I had to park in this really tight alley filled with garbage cans, parked cars and a pair of orange cats. It can be hair raising, especially in a bigger car like the GMC Terrain. Sure, it's smaller than the Traverse, but visibility's not that great and it feels like a bigger car.
Any way, I have a nasty habit of eating sunflower seeds in the morning. Stems from my baseball days. Well, I started choking on one and it becomes a little difficult to drive through a narrow alley as you suffer the same inglorious fate as George Bush avec pretzel. I was coughing, my eyes were watering, and I couldn't tell if the little white car ahead was parked or not (maybe a Mazda 3?).
I finally managed to dislodge the seed from my throat and ungracefully jettison it out the window. Hopefully it didn't land on anyone's car, that would be quite uncouth.
