Grandma + Grandpa in the Smart Car

They bought a new Smart Car. I've been on a quest to see if they're in the oldest in America. They're not (by 3 years) but they're pretty damn cute, I think.

 

They're so funny. They were told that the Smart can only hold 500 pounds, including passengers. So they've figured out that the 2 of them weigh approx 300# (a liberal guess, but whatever) and that they can carry 200# of cargo.

 

So the other day, when grandma had to do shopping for Thanksgiving, she made grandpa take the Cadillac instead. She thought she was going to buy over 200#. We were cracking up because there was just no way. (she was only responsible for one T-Day dish).

 

Her justification to me? I had to buy 20 pounds of yams! AND onions! AND lettuce! (the lettuce part made us giggle the most).
