The Teen in All of Us


I'm not usually caught up with cars.

I drive a 16 year old Mazda.

But...

The other day a friend joined us for dinner.

He is 21.

He brought over his new Shelby.

Yikes!

500 horsepower.

Open the hood and the engine looks like something NASA would build.

I don't want it. I don't need it.

But having driven in it, I get it. Wow!

Sort of like erotica. You feel a bit guilty for noticing but your heartbeat can't resist elevating at least a bit.

David, I am glad that you had a brief "taste" of my escape from reality. My prescription reads 528 HP, 1967 427/SC Cobra. I believe that your young friend and I frequent the same Pharmacy. Please tell him that he certainly displays good taste!
Tell him this comes from an old guy. Tell him old guys know everything...........

Cheers
