Oh, Erik.

I have a friend from college named Erik. He is known for many things: his photographic memory, scary haircuts, his ability to engage in drunken debates that no one can recall the next day, and being such a nice, patient person, he even attemped to teach me how to throw a ball. He was not succesful in this last endeavor.

But above all of these amazing qualities, when I think of Erik, I think of the Shit-vic - his beat up, old as dirt, 2-door, black Honda Civic that he drove through most of our formative years. (Yeah, Erik, that's what I think of when I think of you. You might want to work on a new gimmick.)

Everytime I would hang with Erik, he would show me the new "features" of the Shit-vic. And by "features", I mean...you know those empty buttons in your car that would be something if you bought the top end model? But since you just bought the bottom of the line model, you now have all these empty buttons that serve no purpose? Well, Erik would take those buttons and make them do things. For example: he installed a mechanism that would beep everytime he put the car in reverse (like a "wide load"). There were no empty, worthless buttons by the time Erik was done with it.

I think he finally sold the Shit-vic for a grand total of $7.

But alas, this brings me to my point. I stumbled upon this website today and I immediately thought of Erik.

All I am to you is a car my brother drives now!? I'm hurt.

Ok. Not really.

Hahahaha. I had no idea that Kevin drives that car now. Haha. Poor Kevin. Homeless people probably try to give him money on his way to work.

But yeah Erik. That pretty much sums it up. :)
