The Blue Jeep

Yes, yes, I know. Two posts in one day is hardly orthodox, especially less than two hours apart, but I hope you'll forgive me. When I think of things, I have to do them immediately, otherwise I'll forget.
At this particular time, I felt the need to share with you a rather significant and distressing part of my life.

This is a Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Known to me in my simplicity as "the blue jeep." (I am aware that it's not actually a jeep.)

I do not trust this vehicle.
Why don't I trust it?
Because it is stalking me.

Everybody seems to think I'm crazy when I tell them I'm being stalked by a blue jeep, especially when I tell them it is the jeep itself and not the driver who is following me, but I see it and I can feel it watching and I'm NOT crazy.
I see this blue jeep EVERYWHERE, sometimes several times a day. It all started one day when BFF Beth and I went to Shopko and I saw this jeep no less than THREE TIMES in fifteen minutes in different locations. It was then that I began to suspect. Later, on a school trip to the city, I saw it again, at least three or four times, driving past and trying to look casual. Since then I have seen it everywhere I go, and I know something is up. I have many friends who have never seen this vehicle unless they were with me, and then they see it everywhere too. And don't try to chalk this up to coincidence, cause it happens WAY too often. On the worst occasion, my dad dragged me along on some errands one day and left me in the car while he went into the store. When I looked over, I saw a horrific sight: An entire dealership lot of blue jeeps smirking back at me, and I couldn't do a thing about it. It's been a lot sneakier lately, usually trying to blend into parking lots, but I can still see it.
It may seem as though I'm just overreacting-- surely I'm only seeing it so much because it has such a distinctive look -- but I don't believe it, not for a moment. Just by looking at it, you can tell that it can't possibly be up to any good. It's far too jaunty and smug to be trustworthy, and there's no doubt that it's up to something. It definitely has it in for me. I just need to stay one step ahead, but, of course, the blue jeep will always be watching.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is not to be trusted.
Don't let yourself be fooled.

The same thing has happened to me...but with green Tatem bugs...I swear they're all part of a cult...I ALWAYS saw one while in Utah...anytime I drove or rode in a car...I saw one. It was scary...

Yeah, I used to see Tatem bugs all the time, but they never bothered me because they're not shady characters like the blue jeep

I have not seen this jeep anywhere since the night we went to Macey's together. I am beginning to believe you now. :)

I remember I was on my way to your apt when I saw one in front of me heading in the same direction. When I called you to tell about it, another one showed up in the next lane.
