If My Car Could Talk, a short story by Samantha Gilzean

Bonita Jamaica is always very proud to show the world the talent and creativity of Jamaicans. That’s what we do. Please take a minute to read this beautiful short story by 10-year old Samantha Gilzean, another bright Jamaican star in the making.

What would you do if your car was talking? Well let me tell you what happened.

One early Friday morning I woke up and got ready for work. While I ate breakfast my daughter Antoinette came to me and said “Mommy can we go now I don’t want to be late for school.” I replied, “yes”, and put the plate in the sink and went outside. When I went outside I heard someone say “Why do you always carry Antoinette to school late?” I looked around and saw no one. I started to wonder where the sound came from. Then I thought out loud was it the car. Then sarcastically I heard a voice say “NO!!” I could not believe it, my blue Mercedes Benz was talking. Antoinette came running out of the house saying “Mommy get in the car!!”

On my way to drop off Antoinette the car said “Don’t you think you should drive faster? Don’t mind me asking, but how many late slips has she gotten?” I replied “You are one rude car.”

When I arrived at work my boss came to me in the parking lot and said “Miss Sweet I want to talk to in my office.” Then my car said “Yes, because you need help with that outfit. Haven’t you heard of fashionable clothes, maybe not because of the amount of grey hairs I see? “Wow.” My boss looked at me angrily and said “Miss Sweet see me as soon as you can.” I said to my car “You are going to get me fired or is that your plan”? Then quietly I heard a voice saying “Um yes.”

I went to my boss’s office and he said “What kind of rudeness did I hear from you Miss Sweet. I don’t like the behavior that was shown in the parking lot. You are lucky you are such a good worker or I would have fired you.” I replied “thank you so much and I am extremely sorry.” I went into my office and started working.

While I was packing up to leave in the evening the phone rang and it was Antoinette’s teacher on the line telling me to come there quickly because Antoinette’s feeling sick. I packed my stuff and rush outside into the parking lot. My rude car said “Why are you rushing? Antoinette’s school is not over yet. Pay attention to the time.” I said to the car “Antoinette is sick so we need to go get her.” My coworker came outside and said “Um who are you talking to?” “Oh no one, I’m talking to myself,” I said. I jumped into my car and left my work place.

When I got to her school the car said “Go get sickly, I mean your sick daughter.” I went up to her classroom and got her and then we left.

When I arrived home and Antoinette went inside the house the car said “Maybe things will work out between us, don’t you think.” I said to the car “goodnight” then the car said to me “fine don’t answer, oh goodnight.” I went inside and had a good sleep.

I pretended this day never happened.

Samantha Gilzean 10 years old and is in Grade 6 at St. Peter & Paul Preparatory School, Kingston, Jamaica. Photograph above shows Samantha and her mother Sheron Gilzean. Her dad, Ewart Gilzean, barely made it in the photograph in the back at the right.

Nanokeratin locks onto the hair, forming a fine, smooth coat of keratin.
Likewise, using imported shampoos and conditioners from a tropical country when your climate is cold and temperate is not such
a good idea. When one thinks of fungus, they don't generally associate it with the head or scalp, but the itching, burning scalp, rash or pimples on the scalp could very well be caused by a fungus, requiring antifungal shampoo to provide well needed relief to the symptoms.

Also, they are lighter and can be used around plants which
prefer somewhat acid content in the soil composition.
If you are working on a riding mower or a mower with an electric starter,
you will also want to disconnect the battery as to prevent any accidental startups while servicing your machine.

Mulch also keeps soil from being depleted of vital nutrients, so gardeners do not
have to rotate planting locations from year to year.

Its not surprising that people might become depressed
during stressful times – such as going through a divorce,
caring for a sick relative or financial problems. As someone who believes in natural healing
methods more than the traditional medicine which has its own side effects, I liked the fact
that she focuses on natural methods of healing from yeast infection.
A good personal injury lawyer can save you from making
a great deal of mistakes and can shoulder much of the
hassle of knowing what to do about car repairs, car
rentals, medical treatment, witness statements and the like.
Different from other girls, she did not wear the very sexy short dress and very high-heeled shoes, she only wore a white skirt, which suited her slim figure very
much, and her hair was very straight, she had white
and smooth skin, a pair of big eyes which could speak for her, I saw
the unique charm in her. And just think how great you'll look and feel when you are consistently doing 100 ab exercises a day.
