We have a big blue van that we named Stella. The only problem with Stella is that she came with a whiny horn. The original horn says, “mooooove. you’re in my waaay.” And no one takes it seriously.
Recently Josh stopped into our favorite neighborhood “trick out your ride” shop to talk with the owner Rick. He’s an American guy whose lived here in Costa Rica for like 20 years. Sometimes they talk about cars, sometimes they talk about God. (Today it was cars.) Josh complained that our van has a weenie horn. He said, “I want a horn that will make people pee their pants!!” Rick said, “I have just the thing for you.”
Now Stella has a horn that gets some notice! Her horn says, “I’m comin’ through! Get out of my way!” It forces you to take her seriously. It lets you know who’s the boss. Now she can demand some respect on the road! And I know it’s evil of me, but I can’t wait to see Lazy-Pedestrian-Guy pee his pants.
