You surely recognize my car, with which I am inextricably linked. Well, today that car was the subject of an office-wide email, which no less than fifty people received. The subject line was "Green Cadillac," and the email itself said this, and this alone:
"Does anyone know who the owner is of the older green Cadillac that has been parking in our lot on a regular basis?"
I am that owner! Apparently my car is so awesome that people assume I am parking illegally in private lots to escape the high costs of parking meters--something like $0.25 for a half-hour in most of Traverse City. I mean, how else would a person afford the monthly payments on such an automobile, other than cutting corners when it comes to parking meters? Really, I understand why people would ask these sorts of questions.
