    Default Truck in the window

    So about 20 minutes ago I found myself in the Wal Mart/Strip Mall parking lot stopped and about to make the turn into the main flow of parking lot traffic. When I turned (left), I realized I was looking at the reflection in the window looking at how cool my truck looks and how awesome I look doing it. Which leads me to thinking...who else has done this/does this or am I the only one?

    oh this is very common! I go to the local grocery store at lunch that is in a strip mall and drive slowly past the windows to catch my reflection. I do it on the way in and on the way out. Most of all I love when it's sunny and I'm driving and can see the light reflecting off my wheels onto the road. Who else loves that?

    Here is an example of what I mean.

    Whenever I do something new I check my truck out in reflections. Or when I am driving to work. Or when I am driving into the work parking lot. Or when I leave the work parking lot. Or when I am going past a store that has a lot of windows. Or going through the parking lot at the post office......

    Needless to say, my focus isn't always on driving ;)
