Today my sister and I were riding in the car, back from a very painful trip to Target (not painful because of the service, but because we both are very susceptible to ADD meltdowns in various establishments) and she says to me, “I need to blog again; what upsets me lately?” At that exact moment, one of my bigger pet peeves drove by: a car with eyelashes over the headlights. And so this post was born.
I may be jumping to conclusions with some of my statements, and I do apologize, but I just don’t feel I can trust a person who deems it important that their car has eyelashes. What drives one to think “My car could really benefit from a healthy pair of eyelashes”? They don’t enhance the beauty of the car, like they do a face. And you don’t think it’s weird to come across a car sans eyelashes. I guess my whole point is that it’s all beyond me.
But now I have to ask: what kind of person puts eyelashes on their car? Is it someone with a high-paying job, wielding a lot of power? Probably not; I can take very few people seriously, let alone the driver of a car with these things taped on. Is this a special brand of crazy?
Now, I am a big Jenna Marbles fan, so I know she had these on her car at one point. And yes, I did think when she did it, it was funny and cute and I enjoyed a good laugh. But now, years later, I just think they look more ridiculous than a skinny Santa at the mall.
I should also mention that I would be a little more accepting of this trend if I only saw teenage girls with eyelashes on their Beetles. Unfortunately, the woman I saw today was mid-fifties, rolling through town in a Fiat. Not an acceptable age for this.
My advice to you, blog-reading world, is if you’re unsure if the crap you have stuck to your car is appropriate, it probably should come down. Also, think about where you are in life: are you a 16 year old girl with a red Volkswagen? Or are you a middle-aged man, with a good job and a Benz? If the answer involves any part of the latter question, don’t tape that shit to your car.
