One of the things I love about the man

Brett is a car guy. In the eleven years we've been together he's always leased, and there's a pattern. Something sporty and fun, in black, followed by something perfectly nice, but less exciting, in gray. The gray cars are often Acuras, and as you'll recall, while I find nothing inspiring about their design, theres nothing better for chasing a drunken 28 year-old through the streets of Kansas City.

The fun cars of late have been Infinitis. Or Infinitii. Whichever you prefer, they make some beautiful automobiles. I loved driving his G35 when he went out of town because I could gun it through Meyer Circle and it hugged the road like nobody's business. Alas, it was before they started making all-wheel drive and as anyone who lives in Kansas City will tell you, rear-wheel drive just plain sucks when we get snow.

The thing that's so sweet is that he likes cars so much that he gets excited even if the new car isn't his. He loves my LR3, and with his lease ending soon was thinking about one. But he had time to look, so there was no hurry, right?

Uh, no. When the car bug hits him it's all over, and today was the day. Rather than leasing he decided to buy a good late-model used car. Staying with the pattern, it was time for something fun, and as you can see,
something black. In this case, an 06 M35x. Sleek, black inside and out, and sexy as all hell. Congratulations baby, I love it!

Next up on the list - a killer house. Great things come in threes, you know.

You have no idea how badly I hope you're right. Phyllis' mother in law's estate sale was Saturday, so I got to go through the house again, this time with all the drapes open. It needs tons of work and I'm trying to keep my enthusiasm in check, but it's just SUCH a cool place.

The car's a hit. Hmm....there was an estate sale just a few houses from me on Saturday - could it be?

David said...

Mrs. B: I bet it is. You'd mentioned walking to Brookside before, I had wondered if the dream house was somewhere in that vicinity.

Did you stop in Saturday? It's certainly a project, but I think the house has great bones, I'd love your opinion.

Beauteous.

I'm like that. I decide to buy a car and I buy one.

When I moved here I had a 4WD but now I have a Prius because it doesn't snow here for 6 months!
