Car Slut Confessions: H1 Virus

A friend of mine recently sent me an email proposing that we test drive a Hyundai. Now, Mama’s a busy lady and tooling around in a Hyundai isn’t exactly at the top of weekend wish list.

Whether you see them laughing, fighting, holding hands or making out, the same dreadful feelings endure– do they kiss like me, is her...
