OOOO...I'm so in trouble

Idle hands are the devil's workshop. Not that I have that much time on my hands. Now that I'm taking a month off from all training, I have more time for marketing my company, spending more time with the kids on homework, supporting Mrs. Taconite (Trimama) for IMFL and driving...I mean selling this-



I wish I could say this is my off season toy, but it's not. My good friend, I'll call 'Bones' has moved himself, wife and six kids to Hong Kong to take a international corporate position (did I mention the cars fast?). He needed to sell his Mitsuibishi Evolution, but didn't do it before he left. I volunteered to help him sell it since it's tough to give a test drive when the cars in Minnesota and your in Asia (did I mention it has 260 horsepower, all wheel drive, sport suspension and goes 0-80 in less time then Trimama can scream at me to slow down? No?...Well its true.)



I've NEEDED to take the car out several...ahhh, many times to make sure I can properly understand and fully demonstrate all it's features to prospective buyers. I'm finding the usual response from passengers (or victims) is a sudden grip of the race seats followed by uncontrolled giggling. It must be the combination of speed and near death experience that leaves people with a sudden desire to laugh danger in the face. :)

As I alluded to earlier, Trimama is not so impressed with this mechanical wonder(did I mention I've done hair pin turns at 50?). I think tonight she pulled out the big guns by stating "What if you hit someone in that thing...you know you'd go to jail for awhile". O.K. I may be the blue collar Taconite Boy, but I'm not so dense that I don't get THAT hint.

Keep Tac boy out of prison, buy this car!

Boy wonder, that car is dangerous, and not because of how it drives. Sell, sell, sell.

Maybe if you ding the door, you will have to buy it. Hmmmm?

I drive a mustang cobra in the summer with about 320 hp. Nothing but fun!! Hey, yours is practicle, 4 wheel drive and all.

So, my suggestion that you just buy the darn thing would get me in trouble with Tri-Mama?

Best to skip it, then. Don't drag us into your self-imposed trip to the doghouse.
