SO THIS is how a man slips into the twilight of his life, under the harsh fluorescent lighting of a car dealership, signing one piece of paper after another and discussing 0.9 percent financing before a smiling salesman hands him a new set of keys and claps him on the back and says: "Good luck." God help me, I just bought a minivan. Dual sliding doors, reclining captain's chairs, rear air-conditioning controls - is this all there is to life now? Keyless remote entry system, aluminum alloy wheels, heated outside mirrors - take me now, Lord.

IF YOU own a minivan -- we have a snappy Mazda MPV that has squeezed all the joy of driving out of our lives -- you've probably already identified your biggest on-road nightmare. It's not getting rear-ended by an 18-wheeler. It's not getting a $200 speeding ticket from some cranky state trooper who nails you doing 85 in a 55. It's getting a flat tire. Because a flat in most minivans means you're doomed, something we only recently learned in my family. Our flat-tire horror story begins this way: It's 8 in the morning.

You may remember this season's bachelorette, Emily Maynard, as the winner (and later dumpee) of the less-than-bright Bachelor Brad. She's the hot single mom with a tragic past and too many morals (she refused the overnight invitation). Her fiance, NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, died in a plane crash -- a plane she would have been on if it wasn't for the morning sickness she was experiencing with their unborn daughter. Okay, that is very sad. No jokes there. This time around, ABC is skipping the Los Angeles mansion in favor of Emily's hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.
