Reflections of Summer

Yeah, it looks dorky. But I use one of those thermal reflective thingies that go in your car windshield.

"Mama? Why you got a sillber fing in you window?" Emmie asked me.

"It keeps the car from getting too hot," I replied.


"It pushes the sun's light and heat away from the car window," I tried to explain.

She frowned: "But do it get dark wif no sun?"

I grinned: "No. The light gets in other ways."

"But how can you see?"

I laughed: "I don't drive with it, honey. I take it out. It's just for when it's sitting still."

"Ohhh," she giggled. "I was finking it was for dribe-ing!"

(Nope. It's just for lookin' smoooooooth.)


  1. You should have told her it was the car's space suit.

  2. Argh! That is a great idea! Why didn't I think of that?
