Anyone Have an Outlet Handy?

When I was looking for a new car at the end of last year I would drag at least one kid with me. This way we could check on leg room in the backseat.

One day Middle Child and I ended up at the Ford dealership in town. Of course it had snowed about a foot the day before and the cars were in the process of being uncovered and parking lot plowed. So the awesome salesman brought us inside to look at the hybrid Fusion they had on the showroom floor. He knew I didn't want a hybrid, but they were almost the same when just looking at them. 

I climbed in the front and Middle Child climbed in the back, to check out the legroom. And since he can't be anywhere without touching things he flipped a plate cover and found this below it.


The excitement in his voice as he called for me was barely contained.

"Guess what is back here!?!?!?!? An OUTLET! If we forget to charge our DSi's we don't have to worry about it! We can just bring out home chargers!"

The important things for boys.

Outlets are important for big boys too!

That is great. We could charge cameras, phones. etc. What more could a body need---food.

The kids find all the cool things in the cars!

Ford should totally forget about trying to sell the Hybrid Fusion for its energy-saving benefits and concentrate on its DSi-charging capabilities instead...

we were excited when we found the charger in the back of our pickup. Boys love toys.
