Cool Gray Khaki September 14, 2019

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

That is the name of the color of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek I ordered. The thing is, I’d never seen one in person, at least not one sitting still. They didn’t have that color on the lot. In fact, they didn’t have an unpurchased 2019 on the lot, so I couldn’t even test drive one.

In some photos online, I liked the color. In others, I wasn’t so sure. You know how that goes.

I did the paperwork and put down a deposit that gave me right of first refusal, as it’s apparently a difficult color to get. If I didn’t like it, I’d get a dark gray.

I rented a car for a week, went to Maryland, visited my mother (out of the hospital, back in rehab), went to Mary Helen’s funeral, went to church. Made some connections and reconnections.

Dropped off the rental and headed to the dealer on a day when I was having strange dizzy spells. I hope that doesn’t turn into a real story in my future.

I think I like the color. I thought I did enough to buy it. But Tim had to drive it home. Those dizzy spells scared me.

Cool gray I get. Khaki I don’t get. In the bright light, it’s bluer, but I think it’s a blue I can live with.

Now I have to learn how everything works. It’s like a computer in there.

How exciting! A new car…
Hey, I met a couple from Westminster on the cruise.

Oooo, do you remember their names? (I probably don’t know them, but…)

I didn’t get their names.

“Gray” never looks right to me. The spelling, not the colour. I Google-Imaged the colour, and it looks quite blue-ish. It will be different in different light, of course. Our new-to-us car is a deep blue, but depending on the light it varies from greenish to purple.

Hope you enjoy the new car. I’m loving ours, but you’re right about having to learn everything new. There are still things I’m figuring out.
