2011 Nissan Juke: The Kid Needs a Desk

November 09, 2011

11 nissan juke desk kid Who knew that kindergarten kids had so much homework?! What happened to a whole year of eating paste and watching bean plants grow in styrofoam cups (if you didn't stuff your bean up your nose)? Ah well, times change.

When you're a kindergarten kid with a toddler brother who is really good at getting into your stuff, you need a real desk, all your own, that the brother can't reach. We didn't have such a thing. But Savior of After-school Sanity Michael Jordan had a desk for me in his garage. A really nice one. Plus, he kindly offered to load it into the Juke and drive it all the way from his house to my house this weekend in the rain. We don't live close. I just won the busy parent jackpot.

Read Michael's notes from the experience (plus see a photo of the disassembled desk in the back of the Juke) after the jump.

Thanks again, Mr. Jordan.

2011 nissan juke desk.JPG "The Juke's low liftover height makes loading heavy objects much easier, as does the fairly flat load floor. That last detail is a nice surprise, since vehicles with comfy reat seats (like the Juke), often can't also achieve a flat load floor. The thick seat cushion usually creates a big incline.

"Inside, the Juke is long enough for hand-me-down furnishings from/for friends and family, and our SL's standard navigation system helps find your way to their inevitably small/remote/hard-to-find domicile."

(I think he just insulted my house.--BAM)
