Should my Daughter Reconsider?

Posted June 22nd, 2012 by kcorliss. Comment (1).

After enduring the embarassment of driving dad’s hand-me-down 1993 Suzuki Esteem for several years, my daughter has gone ahead and purchased a “new” used car: A spotless Dodge Stratus with low miles. Here’s the kicker though, it’s red.

I know what you are thinking, ‘aha, she will be targeted by police for speeding tickets with a red car.’ Yeah, targeted maybe, though not by police necessarily.

According to the Metro (out of the UK), a survey conducted in five English cities has found that red cars are more likely than any other colors to be the targets of birds when pooping. The story doesn’t actually tell us who conducted the survey or how it was done so we have no way of digging deeper into the mechanics of the actual poll;  we can only assume the data are accurate. If that is the case, I wonder if this bit of news would disappoint my daughter. Somehow I don’t think so.

    I did not need a study. While living on the Oregon Coast for 22 years, I rinsed outside cars at my B&B every morning. If it was red, maroon or something close it was the target of the sea gulls. Obvious. Loaded.
