Purple...Sort Of

The other night in the chat room we were talking about one of Cara's stories. The heroine's sisters names were car names, Mercedes and Porsche (spelled Portia). I think the brother's name was Ford.

I mentioned playing off that idea for today's Purple theme and they liked the idea - we'll see how it goes. Below is an excerpt from my story, Savin' Me. I hope it's not too purple because I actually used it!! But I thought it might give an example of what I was thinking.

Erik quirked an eyebrow. How could Elise and Kat possibly be in competition for anything? One was like a Rolls Royce. Compact with overly done curves, high maintenance and pretentious as hell. The other—he flicked a glance to Kat—was like his Harley. Sleek, commanded attention, represented freedom and wild abandon, and provided the ride of a life.

So what kind of description can you guys think of, using car comparisons or names of cars to describe the personality of a person?

Hope it's a great day for everyone!!
Peace and Love,

I'm away from my computer and the 'net today but I'll work on this and hopefully post this evening when I get back.

The secretary at my husband's office lost her trailer in a fire. She, kids and pets are fine, but they're scrambling to get their lives back together and I'm answering phones. Her computer doesn't have net access and for some reason, my laptop knocks everyone off the net. :(

Catch you on the other side!

Oh, Silver, I'm so sorry for her!! Our trailer burned down when I was in high school so I have a complete understanding of what she's going through.

I'm just glad she and her children and pets were okay. Wish I was closer so I could somehow help!

Sending her hugs from NC!
