"We like the car because we feel sweet, calm and warm."
Updated: Sep 13
A hot car in the sun may seem like a terrible place to be, but for Calder it's great.
Something abnormal might in fact be normal
Calder loves the car. His joy for car rides knows no bounds and he even enjoys sitting in the car in the hot sun. It can be 90 degrees outside, and the only thing Calder wants to do is sit in the car. He doesn't even care about air conditioning.
Now this might seem odd. I mean, who would want to sit in a car without the AC on in 90-degree weather? I certainly wouldn't. But once you dive a bit deeper, you begin to understand it a bit more.
To Calder, the car is more than a car, it's a safe place. It's like my bedroom for me. A place where I can be left alone to my own devices without having to deal with the hassle of others. Calder feels the same way about the car. Sure it might seem odd on the surface, but he knows that the car is one of the few places where no one is going to go and annoy him. He can just chill.
Now the weather might make his experience a little uncomfortable, but it also keeps everyone else away. No one is going to go barge on in when you're in the car, because then they, too, have to deal with the heat. But it's important to know that it's not the car that he loves, it's the safe space.
