At 19 I had been

At 19 I had been out on my own for 3 years. I owned my second car, a giant brown monstrosity that could fit a queen size bed in the back and had 8 ashtrays. The hood was as long as I am tall. It was older than my boyfriend at the time (Alex, version 1.0). Once Daniel and I drove down the entire state of New York in a blizzard in that car. The highway was closed, and we were the only people on it. We listened to the snowfall and listened to Simon and Garfunkel. We spent all day on that highway. It’s one of my favorite memories. – Liza
