Have you noticed that when you clean your car, it drives better. What is this, a lightening of guilt, good feelings of a job well done?
Maybe its the car that got euphoric; after all it is ‘alive’. Every part of the vehicle is there because of the thought, intent, sweat and hard work of thousands of people. The car is an expression of their commitment, and they cannot be ruled out of the polish up. Why should these people not celebrate in absentia?
