I have 3 pending posts including an update on an impulsive shopping trip (do not smirk, I have mentioned before – happens to all of us, just in varying degrees). I could not forego this particular post because between absolute mental exhaustion and convincing myself to work on pending papers, I have been reeling the idea over and over and the Mini is a topic which I do not take lightly. And my humble advice to all of you, neither should you. A very famous person once said ‘If you want to succeed in life, commit yourself to the Mini’. For real.
If I may add, I am currently sitting in a cafe drinking over brewed coffee and attempting to work on those papers, but they can wait and so can the fries which I am now tempted to order.
So here’s the story, we all have a dream object (tangible or intangible) in life. Some of us have a general love for cars and we want at least 10 different models, a branded wardrobe (not judging), some of us want mansions, some of us want ‘that’ guitar and others, well, they just want everything. Let me clarify, I am not talking about those short lived desires, I’m talking about things that literally drive us and we know that the day we achieve / earn / purchase / experience them – that will undoubtedly be the highlight of our lives. At least that’s how I can define my love, nay, obsession with Mini Cooper.
Update: Between switching locations and still working on my paper – back to talk about the mini – also, very bored with the thought of some Adler dude who proposed a model for culture shock. Don’t zone me out yet, I will not be discussing him further.
Let’s go back to ultimate object of desire. The MINI. I don’t quite remember when exactly I fell in love with the machine but I’m pretty sure The Italian Job had much to do with it. I own one myself, its a the Mini version of a blue Mini but I love it to death, it sits happily in my room and reminds me of my dream.
Since we have already established today that writing papers does not make you successful and being committed to the Mini does – here are 5 reasons why you should one day own one. Oh and before we get into the why 5 debate – it’s short, simple (focus!) and for a Mini you just don’t need too much convincing.
1. Small – fits anywhere. Ever been to Karachi? The city has no real demarcation of which vehicle (including man) goes where. Hence, the smaller the car – the better off you are (that rhymes!). Besides, with rising population levels – what are you going to do with a big jeep anyway?
2. Available in all possible colours. Seriously, do I need to expand on this one? You feel red, you drive red! And to my lovely fashionistas, you wear that new black dress and drive that beauty of a Black Mini, that’ll have you convinced.
3. Customize baby! Yes, you can create your very own Mini. It’ll cost you a fortune but if you think that someday you might have to live in your car – wouldn’t you make sure it has everything you could possibly need. All Mini websites offer this facility – click here to build one today.
4. Classic. The mini has been around for 5 decades now and it never goes out of style. Non-simpletons, eye balls rolling yet?
5. Never Get Caught. Ever been in a car chase? No. I’ll just say, be prepared and buy a Mini.
And I don’t need to put this down as a reason (me feminine instincts won’t allow me) but boys, women love the Cooper.
