Audi A3 Sportback. Manual transmission with all kinds of fun features. They gave us an amazing deal and it was cheaper than a gently used car, so Ryan got his first new car. Ever.
Dieter liked his trip to Target.
The name was just something that flew into my head when we were discussing what we would call him. He is black with a black interior. I thought of the Mike Myers character from Saturday Night Live, Dieter from Sprockets. And the funniest thing is that if you trust Wikipedia, which is always 100% accurate, Dieter's monkey--the one he's always telling people to touch--is called Klaus. We thought that was perfect. And now? Your story has become tiresome.
Seriously, we're very excited and Ryan is beyond thrilled. He's still taking the bus to work, but all our weekend driving around is in Dieter and we're giving Greta a break other than school bus duty. We're planning to keep her around for quite a while longer and this will help.
