MINIs have ruined me

I've been without a car since my R56 blew up. Fortunately I can work from home, but I've been slowly going stir crazy and counting the milliseconds until who-knows-when in December when I will get my F56.

I finally snapped and rented a car. The rental agent seemed to think it was a nice upgrade from a bare-bones car (It's a Camry). It is a decent car, but driving it around I feel like I'm trapped in a soulless, zero-fun hamster wheel of a vehicle.

A couple of times I borrowed the kid's Honda Civic Hybrid (which I previously drove for 10 years) before I got the rental. I felt like a little part of me was dying every time I drove it. The Camry is the same.

I have concluded that the MINI has irredeemably ruined me, and that I am forever cursed to only drive fun, cute cars or suffer a slow lingering death behind the wheel of a boring, gutless normal car.

Anyone else feel ruined by MINIs?

I bought my first MINI when I decided I'd been sensible for far too long and I really had no need to be. No kid to put n the backseat, just the big old dog. I wanted to enjoy a drive. My R55s put a huge smile on my face both when I drove it and when I thought of driving it. I was heart broken when it was cruelly crushed by a large oak tree limb. Ok it's just a car I told myself, no one was hurt, you have good insurance, you'll get another car. Another MINI.
Yeah, so I was spoiled by the first MINI experience and I still am. The F56s is sooo different than the R55s, but it still put a MINI sized smile on my face. Don't mind me folks but I think I'll take the long route home.
