It’s been a long time. I would have to rifle through old photos to see if I could get lucky (so to speak) and catch the license plate.

That 'little guy' as you call him is Angelo Muscat who was also in one of Roal Dahl's movies.

Doing it in or with something that old is necrophilia.

She was considerably younger at the time.

I have nothing against older people. I just sometimes try to imagine myself at fortysomething driving a car my age: the old gearbox takes a while to wake up, brakes don't work,... and the upholstery smells fusty. It sounds too traumatic for me.

I am very tempted to take this analogy further, but at some point it would probably annoy your husband.

A car used by other people? Yikes! I think at forty I will need a reliable family car, standing in a garage in case I need it and for occasional spontaneous hideaways. My BFF claims that family with children is like peaceful holidays from a child- free couple's life for a woman: you're a mother, you "gave him a child", you can be moody, tired, annoyed, have no time or a headache, and it's fine. No drama about it. She's almost convinced me. The only problem is the perspective of previously mentioned manquements.
