The other day, while searching the car for something about the size of a pencil eraser. I made a discovery. Something I didn’t know had existed, despite the fact I’ve owned the car for 2.5 years. I folded down one of the back seats and found a loop attached to the carpet in the hatch area. What’s this I wondered. Was it a hidden third row, which we didn’t purchase as an extra option on the vehicle. Did it hold the part of my earbuds I was so desperately looking for so I wouldn’t have to spend another $20 to comfortably listen to my iPod while walking? I slowly tugged on the loop, Up came the carpet. Underneath, a secret storage compartment. It had gathered a few dust bunnies over the course of my ownership. I looked at it and contemplated how it had remained hidden so long. There was unused space in my car. Space out of public view. At this point, I don’t feel a need to put something in it, because it’s a little work to get in there. I think I will leave it be for a little bit and hope it soon becomes the spot all the unmatched socks that come out of the dryer call home.
