A weekend of petrochemical bliss (with some electrons thrown in for good measure)
This weekend was the annual Boston Cup, a fabulous auto show on the Boston Common. As well, it was culmination of National Drive Electric Week. It was, in other words, a celebration of four wheels -- the gas guzzling kind as well as the electron munching kind -- and featured cars ... all kinds of cars ...
There were short ones
and fat ones
and skinny ones
and old ones
and new ones.
There were orange ones
and yellow ones
and red ones
and blue ones.
There were electric ones
and mechanical ones
and expensive ones
and even more expensive ones.
There were some you’d park in a field to smoke some herb in
and some that go really fast
and others that go really slow.
There was one made by some MIT students
and one with two badges on its hood. It turns out this one belonged to rock and roller J. Geils.
There were even some two-wheeled ones.
For the petrol-head, and the electron-head, it was a weekend of paradisiacal bliss.
