Almost a decade ago when I still kept the 1600cc Toyota problem car which was that kind of car mostly you would see on the street painted to be yellow as taxicabs, I drove that Toyota Altis 1.6 Break Into Style model new car to the Tamkang University for graduate classes. One day in Taipei City near Tamsui I drove in the McDonald’s Drive-through Service to buy a hamburger for lunch. That McDonald’s was located at Beitou, Taipei City with a language Institute beside that fast food restaurant. That McDonald’s restaurant had several parking spaces beside the drive-through track, and I parked that Toyota Altis 1.6 onto the parking space to be using the drive-in service at the McDonald’s and had my lunch, then. That Toyota Altis 1.6 actually was the Breeze Center 2001 spring acquired sample Prius 1.5 and was altered to be Altis 1.6 2002 winter new car on the Toyota assembly line, although the engine number was marked and adding serial number to be matched with the car selling date, it probably could be easily sniffed out and spotted, for example, by some advanced RFID technology or something like that. Therefore I had heard a lot of discussion about this problem Toyota car, although I did not believe them at all and considered them as rumors. What I really try to say here is that, that day when I went to the McDonald’s I was using the drive-in service to park my problem Toyota sedan to have my lunch. I did have that McDonald’s lunch, a perfect and comfortable meal. They said that you’d better use the drive-through service, instead of drive-in, but I did not listen, you know. It was explained there that if you were drive-in, quarrels would happen more easily than if you were drive-through. Isn’t that ironic?
Later in summer of the same year, I discovered that there would be some professional killer having been trying to approach me for some killing and it was successfully defeated by a congressman from Chicago on that day. That was my hero, and he told me that I was an American. I had a Child Abuse Case account registered in the United Nations since 1979 and I was called for some testimony or to be as a referee in 1996 in the New York City before I was forced back by the pressure caused by my grandmother’s death and dropout from Baruch graduate program after I had applied in person for the green card with my Social Security Number account registered by the City University Baruch graduate school for the human rights concern out of my grandmother’s death during the United Nations and US Congress called for a testimony. I heard that besides me, there were a lot of human rights cases like my child abuse case account registered in the United Nations. For example, there was an Iran nationality human rights case registered in the United Nations account, probably the same Child Abuse Case as mine. The depiction was delivered as that the Iranian had beard to be appeared more muscular, with more prominent silhouette to be appeared more handsome. I almost jealous him when that day heard such depiction, you know. But the matter is that earlier on that day the Iranian of the United Nations human rights account was in a drive-in theater to have some quarrels with some familiar figure which seemed to do with my green card identity theft issue and then got shot dead on the drive-in theater. “It was a United Nations human rights account as well but why don’t you defend him?”, decrying by some human rights advocate. Later it was probably reported to the police using my English or even Chinese name by identity theft suspect, actually at the same day I appeared in the Toyota Music Box suffered an attempted killing in the Far East island, definitely an alibi you know. The Toyota advertisement program in the television was with the US singer Britney Spear, that could be an artificial intelligent to host some program events.
These years before the Taipei county to be upgraded to the New Taipei City, some lobbyist came from the USA was ever advocating for their drive-in theater business. They planned to introduce the drive-in theater with movies and picnic spree peddlers held in the spaces such as the desolate farmland near my house just like when I was a teenager some outdoor movie projected in front of my house beside the street. They said that there were lots of drive-in theaters which could be found near the main cities in the USA and it would be a major suburban holiday outdoors amusement which the urban citizen could be engaged with their cars in vacation surrounding the cities, and one thing worth it was that it would be an event so significant that it was a parallel to the American life. Interesting enough? The Ironic Drive-in.
