Dear Santa

Dear Santa,
I know it is early, but I want to give you plenty of time to work your magic.
At first, I thought to myself - how is Santa ever going to top that trip to Paris? 
I mean, that was the best gift ever!
But then I read about the pink Honda Fit.
Maybe my letter should be addressed to Honda, but I have faith in you, Santa.
You see, for now, the pink Fit is only available in China and Japan.
Skeptics are calling it a car for very young ladies who love Hello Kitty and old ladies. 
I suppose, in the eyes of one who is 20 or 30 years younger than me, I am an "old" lady.
A PINK car?  Yes, please.
This is a women's specific car.  I have a women's specific bicycle - why not a women's specific car?
This car also has a special windshield glass that claims to cut ninety-nine percent of ultraviolet rays and "Plasmacluster" air-conditioning that Honda says can improve the skin quality of the driver. Sign me up!
The starting price is $17,500.
Not too shabby considering in '93 I paid $15,000. for a new Honda Civic EX. (Which I am still driving with an odometer reading nearly 189,000 miles.
 I hear that some in the United States are calling this women's specific car "sexist." I don't get that, personally.  There have been huge trucks for men and muscle cars for men and it seems from the beginning of time - automobiles were for men - no women.  I say "about time!"
 The one pictured below is my favorite.  SO cute!  These women specific cars have pink stitching and other touches of pink.  The emblem reads She's with a heart for the apostrophe.  I can understand some might think this is gaggy, but I think it is adorable.
So, Santa, can you see what you can do?  I would appreciate it.  If Honda doesn't get this car to the U.S., someone else will.  I'm going down to the dealership and make a personal inquiry. 
I should have looked into this on Black Friday or Cyber Monday - maybe Asia would have given me free shipping? 
Santa, if you can't work this deal out - another trip to Paris would be fine.
Love ya, Santa,baby.

Love the pink! How could any day be bad if you had that pink happiness sitting in your drive. I think even driving to work would be fun!

I love that last pink one! When I was about 20 I drove a pink vw bug...I loved that car! I see a pink smart car with a black roof driving around looks like a happy car..

Again I'll say, pink is your color girl. That car would be so cute for you Cheryl. I like the last one the most :O) As I get older I'm loving the little wagons, but my current car is still holding up well. DREAM PINK! xo

I am so tired of these
women who are so tied
up in feminist ideals that
they can't see the forest
for the trees. LOVE Honda
for targeting women for
a change!! Of course, like
you, I've driven my own
Hondas in the past, just
not anything like this!

I am certain you'e been a
very good girl and that
Santa Baby will deliver : )

Hope you are enjoying
the season, sweet friend!

xo Suzanne

LOL! Let's hope that there's a version made in a US plant. Gotta get jobs for ladies in US so they can buy it.
Santa magic is not all that reliable.
