Because these stories are often based in fact, people have a fun time trying to figure out what is fact and what is fiction. Darla's car is an invention of my imagination that was spurred on by the pink Mary Kay cars you see rolling down the road. Although you do not see as many as you used to. This was something I came up with just for this book, but I am quite sure it will make other appearances.
Humor Deeper Than A Holler
Anyway, Darla came rollin’ up about an hour or so after I got there. Her car ain’t too hard to spot. It’s a pink Kia Soul. She had a special paint job done to get the right color pink. It sort of reminds me of a bottle of her nail polish rollin’ down the road. Fortunately, she doesn’t do much drivin’ in it. The farthest she has taken her cosmetic on wheels is up to Columbia for some shoppin’. Unlike my pickup truck, which smooths out at eighty miles an hour, her car hums along at a nice sixty-five. Of course, she doesn’t have the speeding tickets I do either. I don’t know if that’s because of the car’s lack of speed or the fact that no officer wants to be seen next to it.
