What does your car say about you?

While driving my kids to school this morning I was noticing all the brand names of cars. I pulled up behind an "Acura Vigor" and thought that was a pretty ambitious name for a car...especially this early in the morning. Then I saw a minivan that was called a "Sport". Really??? Isn't "Sport" what you call someone when you can't remember their name? "Hey there sport, how are you today?"

I personally drive a "Honda Odyssey" and I started to wonder what the exact definition would be. Luckily Dictionary.com provides a link that I can embed in my blog so we can all find out what we are driving.

For example: I drive an Odyssey.

Od·ys·sey

1. an epic poem attributed to Homer, describing Odysseus's adventures in his ten-year attempt to return home to Ithaca after the Trojan War.
2. a long series of wanderings or adventures, esp. when filled with notable experiences, hardships, etc.
 
 
Or what about that Vigor?

vig·or

[vig-er]
–noun
1. active strength or force.
2. healthy physical or mental energy or power; vitality.
3. energetic activity; energy; intensity: The economic recovery has given the country a new vigor.
4. force of healthy growth in any living matter or organism, as a plant.
5. active or effective force, esp. legal validity.
 
 
Try it with your car...it's kind of fun!

Hey Brad,

I have got a lot out of your blog re the positive discipline cards. So much so I brought some for myself...and in a few days am also doing a giveaway of the cards on my blog.

Thanks so much! Always great hearing how you implement the cards in your family.

Cheers.

Hi Jess,

That sounds like a great idea! Maybe you could choose two winners...one from Australia and one from the states. I would be happy to send the tool cards to the U.S. winner.

Chevy Venture: an undertaking involving uncertainty as to the outcome, esp. a risky or dangerous one.

This sums up my family life.

Hey Brad! Sounds great! I am happy to send to anywhere, but we can do two anyway. Maybe let your followers know too - they can head over and leave their name to enter. Im sure they would be very into the opportunity to win some cards!

Cheers!
