Every time I reach a destination, I do 2 things.

1) I get out, close the door, and lock the car with the fob, like a normal human being.

2) Then, when I've taken a few steps, I turn around, hit the fob again to be sure it's really totally locked down, and I stare at it until all the lights go off. I also make sure I'm parked far enough out in the space so that it doesn't look empty, and that I'm not in too far to make people flying in think it's another empty space. I also admire its paint, and reminisce about how extremely close its blue metallic is to my Saturn's.

Happens every time.

I must also admit, sometimes when I go about "staring at it" I begin to daydream..
-"what if... it were possible to put a shark fin on the roof?? how cool! would this be!?!?
-But then I return to reality, and realize "nah man, that'd get a lot of attention!'
