Car 47 Is A Voodoo Car

I knew it was Car 47 when David called.

“There’s an abandoned car. The engine won’t start. It’s the 10th and Birch car.”

“Oh, hey. Is that the green 2001 Protege that’s supposed to be parked at The Claridge but never is? Because that car is a misery.”

“Hang on, let me get the info and share the misery. It’s…Yeah. It’s a green 2001 Protege.”

So he tells me that it wouldn’t start for a member and that she’s ditched it in a one-hour parking zone on Main at 16th. I tell him I’ll be there in about a half an hour.

The thing is, the car is a liability. it eats batteries, draining them dry. It makes mysterious noises. It secretes mysterious odors.

And yesterday I locked my keys in it while waiting for the boss to come and jump start it.

I think there is an angry voodoo spirit in that car, and we should perform an exorcism.

Either that, or get a new Car 47. That would be okay too.

    I think green is an unnatural colour for a protege. They must all be beige. This one is definitely cursed.

    That’s the car I use for all my vampire hunting work…

    Actually, if it eats batteries it’s not going to play nicely with the onboard system.

    It’s not even a nice green. Maybe that’s what’s making it angry.

    Arwen, it doesn’t play nicely with anything.

    I can hear it whispering and chuckling to itself right now, planning.
