How does it feel to drive your dream car on the first day?

It is the thought of just how good and interesting the feeling would be, that compelled me to dream with my dream car. My friends’ dreams can be very interesting and puzzling at times. Here is what went down in my dreams tonight.

I had been driving an old used car with a lot of mileage, and I hated it. It would get me where I needed to go, but I got tired of fixing leaks and broken parts all the time. It was annoying that I had to take it to the mechanic every time. Even when they take care of everything, I knew in a week I’ll just end up going back there.

Now I have finally decided that I am not going to do it anymore. I have decided to buy a new car! Unfortunately, I have a problem. I have no idea what car to get. Do I want something fast? Do I want something big? Do I want something stylish? Something economical? I have so many choices that I don’t even know where to begin. I am not sure if I will be able to make the decision on my own. And as dreams will have it, I have a lot of money that I am spoilt of choices.

After I did some research, I knew that I would need some expert advice. Eventually, I went to a local dealership to check out some new models. I talked to the saleswoman and listened to her carefully. Her honesty and professionalism were really impressive. She had a lot of very helpful suggestions and showed me some exclusive luxurious choices.

The interesting bit

After a long discussion, I finally decided which one I wanted. She not only helped me with the paperwork and finished the sale, but also the insurance. I was expecting this purchase to be a serious hassle, but the experience was almost painless. Everything went smoothly, and now I have a brand new car! Funny thing I am not sure which brand it was even till now, but I am guessing it was a BMW.

I was so excited when I pulled out of the lot that the first thing I did was change lanes right in front of other cars. “That wasn’t very nice,” I thought to myself. I needed to relax. I didn’t realize what a serious mistake I had made, however, I hadn’t just cut off any other car, I had cut off a police car! It took a few seconds to realize what was happening when I saw the flashing lights in my rearview mirror. By the time I had managed to pull over, my heart was racing. I gathered all the paperwork as he approached my window.

“You forgot to signal back there,” said Officer Daniel, according to his nametag. It’s amazing how I still remember his name from a dream, gracious me.

“Yes, well, it’s a new car so I guess I was a bit unfamiliar with the controls,” I stammered.

He looked at me skeptically.

“I’m pretty sure the controls for the turn signal are in the same place on every car.”

What could I say? He was right.

“I’m sorry,” I ventured.

He looked over my paperwork and noticed that the car was new.

“It would be unfortunate to get a ticket on your first day in a new vehicle,” he said, smiling. “Try not to cut in front of anyone on your way home.” I had never felt so relieved in my life.

As he made his way back to his car I let out a huge sigh “Thank you, officer!” I took a few seconds to compose myself before shifting into gear and hit the paddle to 180KPH hoping to start a police chase. My friends I woke up rolling on my 4*6 bed.
