One of the small pleasures of frequent travel, is to be able to drive a wide variety of different cars courtesy of XYZ Rental Company (name changed to protect the innocent).
Today, I selected a new VW beetle, just because I'd never driven one and just felt like it. Not a bad little car. Plenty of get up and go. Plus, for those of you familiar with the game of "Slug Bug" (or more quaintly "Punch Buggies"), I had the perverse pleasure of being for once, the source of sore shoulders all around the greater Denver area! Heh.
