Matt and I decided to take Hare for a long Monday morning walk, given the fact that it wasn't raining and we didn't really have a reason not to. The sugary-sweet morning springtime smell and the white blossoms on the street were enough to make me stop in awe. And then we saw a drop-dead gorgeous classic Mercedes Benz SL300 drive by us with a creamy white exterior and cherry red interior. It took me about three seconds to fully understand what Janis Joplin's 1970 lyrics "Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?" meant. She was talking about the car we saw, I'm 99% sure of it.
