Across the street from my in-laws there’s someone who owns an ancient VW bus. It looks like it’s one step from the junkyard, but like many VWs, it seems destined forever to defy the odds and keep running.

This evening, as we were leaving their grandparents, my daughter pointed to the bus and said, “Look! That’s the kind of car that sells the organic oil!”*

* For those readers who don’t having children, this is a reference to the character Fillmore in Cars. My daughter has already proved that she’s an astute critic of the film.
