Observed on the street: “Can I drive this time?”

Observed on the street: A young girl of about 5 and her father walk towards their car outside a local drug store. The little girl skips along beside her father, and, as they approach the vehicle, chirps out hopefully, “Can I drive this time, Daddy?”

Observed on the street: Did that car just wink at me??

Photo of a lime green Nissan S-Cargo van with eyelashes attached around the headlights.

 

I thought I saw a coy flutter of those luscious eyelashes as I drove by!

For those of you who want more, check out the side view below.

The vehicle is a Nissan S-Cargo, one of approximately 12,000 produced between 1989 and 1992. Β The eyelashes, to the best of my knowledge, did not come standard. πŸ˜‰
