Remember that Tom Hanks movie, Cast Away?

For those of you who haven't seen it, here's the summary. Tom Hanks is a FedEx guy. He gets in a plane crash and ends up stranded alone on a island for years. To keep his sanity, he develops companionship with a Wilson brand volleyball that also survived the crash. Aptly so, he calls it Wilson.

Now, I haven't been in a plane crash. And I'm not stranded on an island. But I have been spending a lot of time on the road lately away from my family. So what do I do for companionship?

I name my rental cars.

Here is my current companion. Her name is Helen.

Helen has been great. She's full of pleasantries but isn't afraid to get her hands dirty if needs be. She's big boned with a sweet spirit.

Some of my previous friends include Clint (black Mustang), Alan (gray Toyota Corolla), Bryan (some sporty red Pontiac), Hoss (large, blue Jeep Commander), and Marv (white PT Cruiser-lookin' thing).

I would LOVE to see you in a PT cruiser or a mustang. Now that is comedy.

A few weeks ago Chad was out of town and the car they gave him was a CONVERTABLE PT Cruiser. They were all stoked to put the top down for him and he's all, "Uh, no thanks." Who buys PT Cruisers? Convertables?

Got any names for a maroonish/red Tahoe? How'd you like Hoss?

Hoss was nice. He had stadium seating so people in the back could see over the driver out the front windshield. I'd never seen that in a car before. Pretty cool. Hoss also seats a gazillion people. He personally hauled eight very intoxicated advertising professionals back from a very "hip and trendy" advertising holiday party in Hollywood a few months ago. I'd recommend Hoss to anyone who's interested.
