Yellow Sand

I saw something pretty funny at the carwash last week. A young couple was washing their new yellow subcompact in the stall next to mine. The girl was scrubbing the hood of the car with a white rag and noticed it was picking up yellow specks, so showed it to the guy. “Stop!,” he exclaimed, and began inspecting the hood for damage. “This carwashing soap we bought is stripping the paint…”
When I told them it was just yellow sand from China, they looked at me like I was crazy. So I showed them my car, which is gunmetal grey and looks like a yellow-speckled trout after the rain dries on it every year around this time.
