Stella got her Groove On


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.

About amamiot

My family and I are missionaries in Costa Rica. Before that we lived in Mexico and before that we came from Minnesota. I am a teacher, an artist, a "journaler", a quilter, a cooker, a baker, a hostess, a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. I like reading and watching movies (ehem, and quoting movie lines). I would love to be in a Jane Austin movie but I don't know how to ballroom dance or play Whist.

  1. You are humorously mean. I think that Rick guy is the same one Mike used to stop in and visit with from time to time. He even invited our boys to go camping w him. That was a bit weird, though, and we declined. Is this the street down from McDonalds in/near Los Faroles?

    • Is Los Faroles a part of town? I don’t know what that is. But yes, it’s down the street from the McDonalds in Curridabat by Plaza del Sol. And yeah, going camping with Rick, that’s weird. I would have declined too.
