  • There's a passenger in my car who never pays her way.

    She never takes the wheel when I'm tired.
    She never helps with navigation.

    She drools all over the seats and the windows.
    She sheds hair all over.

    And yet I end up taking her almost everywhere I go.

    The smile I share with her while her ears fly in the wind, as she hangs her head out the window, is irresistible.

    She's a constant passenger in my car...and in my heart.
