Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. 15 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else
and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously
divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts. Sit back, grab a cup, and

Here it goes:
So this subject was easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy for me!! The least amazing thing in my life is my car!! Ahhh..to put it lightly it is junk. I have a 2006 Chevy Aveo. The car should have come with a disclosure that reads as follows:
I apologize to the owner for being so uncomfortable! (I have learned that the excitement of getting a new car often hides the most obvious issues such as the seats being ridiculously hard). Your butt and back will start to hurt after atleast 2 hours of steady driving.
I will start to break down once I hit 80k miles at least every couple of months, especially if that month happens to have a 5 week pay period.
If it is very cold out, say 40 degrees or below I have a hard time shifting gears. The dealership will say that this is a gas saving mechanism, it is really a because I am a junk car, poorly made.
Forget about every trying to drive me in the snow without snow tires. You will literally get stuck in a 1/2 inch of snow and a stranger will have to push you out of parking spaces.
I am a target to getting into car accidents, even if you are not in it. I don't know if it's because of my size and bigger trucks can't see me, but I will get hit often! I may even hit a man in a wheel chair, but that doesn't apply to all owners.
I will have faulty wiring that will cost more to repair, more than I am worth, but you will have no choice to fix it, because I will trick you by slowly having things go one at a time.
I am really too small to carry around 2 kids and a husband who is 6'1". This is not a family car, but I am good at tricking new owners that I am a great car due to high gas prices.
In order to close the trunk you have to slam it down at least 5 times before it will actually hitch. This actually amuses me to watch the owners do this. It is a game I play.
Your airbag light will always be on on the passenger side. Even though you will get it checked many times, and your mechanic will think he fixes it. It won't, because of the crazy wiring inside me.
You may also have to slam your glove compartment box really hard to get your heat to work. This is also a game that I play, and amuses me.
So enjoy your new Chevy Aveo. Drive me around. I am good at fitting into small places, you have to admit, that is a good thing :)
If only I had known...things would be different...
