Not "That Thing"

The car...van...bus...let's just say vehicle I drive does not appreciate being called "that thing."  Just to let you know.

I drove a bunch of middle schoolers around to a few of the elementary schools in the area so they could play their band instruments for the little kids.  One of the middle schoolers referred to the Beast as "that thing."  Ugh!

It is "the Beast" or "the short bus," or even the "Hessmobile" but never "that thing" as in "are we going in 'that thing?'" or "Wow!  What is 'that thing?'" or "How do you drive 'that thing?'" or "Look at all the kids in 'that thing!'"

It's really a lovely thing to ride in.  I'd let you drive it if you ever asked.  It's not as intimidating as it might look.  Hmm.  Fitting.  Reminds me of some of the people in my life.
