The artifact that best describes my personality is my 1993 Nisson pickup truck. It is an automatic
so it is a classic because they only made five hundred automatics that year. I have been told by everyone
that has met me that I am a very classy lady.
My truck is a 4-cyclinder engine that is very thrifty on gasoline. Put twenty dollars of gas in the
tank and drive for two weeks. In fact, I am very thrifty with every item I buy. At home and at work I save
money for the company I work for and for myself .
Mechanics are surprised at what a good engine it has for as old as it is. My doctors are surprised
at all the activities I do and that I am so healthy for my age. Most people think I am twenty years younger
than I am. The same people think my truck is five years younger than it is.
This year both my truck and I have aged. My trucks original paint has started to chip and rust has
started to show by the tires. The visors have both broken off and the passenger mirror fell off. They say
It will fall off again if it is reattached. I have been unemployed for a year so I am more stressed, gained
some weight, and I do not sleep as well. This has made me age dramatically.
My truck is very durable, it starts every day, blizzard, hot weather, or rain. I get something
accomplished seven days a week, even when I am ill I will do something with my brain.
Hopefully, I hope we both last a long time with less maintenance and repairs. I can get my truck
repainted and I can lose some weight and get more exercise. Then we will both look better.
