Day Twelve of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
I had a shitty day at work. Tomorrow promises more of the same. I am therefore very, very grateful that I have this to preserve my sanity:  here is my 100-word contribution to day twelve of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration.

Never Be
Once upon a time he’d looked into the trunk and seen nothing but a spare tire, a litter of crushed cups, a handful of magazines, a couple of stray CDs, a flashlight, and a few rags and tools. And the floor of the trunk.
It had only been a dream, of course. He didn’t think he’d ever actually seen the floor of the trunk, even growing up. Even before the weapons and tools totally supplanted clothes, books, and toys, they’d always lived out of it, cramming it full of family.
That empty trunk? Just a wasted life. 

And not his.


Maybe tomorrow will be better after all.

BTW -- my icon on this one?  Is a photo of my little model Impala, with its trunk happily loaded with miniature weapons and tools. There are shotguns, handguns, machetes, knives, shovels, a sniper rifle, bolt cutters, and even -- yes! -- a chainsaw!  Oh, and a spare tire ...  *grin*
