Before my mom left on her trip to Europe, I took her for a drive in the 2004 Acura 1.7 EL. We briefly cruised the city, chatted and then I dropped her home. As she got out of the car I asked what she felt about the Acura's least expensive model, at which she responded, "It's a cute little boring car."

But the plain-Jane EL was exactly what the doctor ordered after having my one and only wisdom tooth pulled out. For the first time I was glad that I wasn't attracting attention looking and feeling the way I did. It was not pretty. Just ask my editor!
