2008 Scion xB: Covet Thy Carpet

February 20, 2008

I've been coveting a red wool rug at Pier 1 for the past six weeks, patiently waiting for the floral beauty to go on sale.

On Sunday, after a month of watching me stalk the store, my husband had enough.

"Just buy the thing already, wouldja?" he begged. "Buy it now, today, while you have a car big enough to haul the rug, you, and your crazy obsessions home at the same time."

Just the words of encouragement I needed... In the Scion xB I raced to the store and forced the weary sales woman to remove the 6 x 9-foot area rug from the overhead display. (Of course I had waited so long, all that was left was the display model).

I easily dropped the xB's rear seat backs and loaded the rug into the car.

A pefect fit. Both in the Scion, and in my home office.
