Bear Left; Right, Frog*

Our new car is a Chevy Cobalt, newer and sportier than the Millennium Bongo, more fun to drive, but it has no bed. And let me take this opportunity to note and congratulate myself on driving some 3,500 accident-free kilometers in New Zealand, on the "proper" side of the road, as our Kiwi friends described it. I thought transitioning back to the "improper" side would be quick and easy, but alas, I find it is a set of habits that have to be deliberately re-acquired. Why can't turn signal and windshield wiper controls be standardized, as are accelerator and brakes, I ask?
