If you drive a used car, you are aware that previously-owned vehicles come with flavor. Character, if you will. My little beaut has a sun roof that likes to pop up when I drive over 60 mph, thus creating a hellish whistling noise that is enough to make any driver go insane. So I did what any bright, college-educated, white, middle-class girl would do: strap 'er down with duct tape!
Surprise! Duct tape does not react well in conditions that involve high speeds and scorching sun.
This is an 80%-accurate replication of my drive to California with Lani early this summer. The heat was infernal, the wind was deplorable , and my car was wrapped in so much duct tape that it looked like a giant present to the God of Miserable Road Trips himself.
