I have heard the stories before; men having a mid-life crisis. It usually involves strippers, hair dye, sports cars and Las Vegas.
I won’t say the Coach is having a mid-life crisis….the most extravagant thing he has ever purchased was for ME.
BUT….he has been drooling over muscle cars for years. And old pick up trucks too. He has dreamed, pined and spoke about having a fun weekend car to piddle around in.
I knew the day would come eventually…and I looked forward to it. He works very hard. He never complains about anything, he is selfless, caring, sweet and he comes home every.single.day.
While I was off shopping with the girls last weekend The Coach attended a large car auction. He ran into Charlie Sheen…when does that ever happen? WINNING! Anyhoo….his inner redneck came to a head.
He came home with this little number. Not the cute teen. The jacked up Jeep!
Just to give you an idea of how redneck this is…I am 5’11.
Ok, I ‘m not 5’ll, but I’m hoping to be 5’4 by my next birthday.
I inquired about air bags. I was told I was lucky there were seat belts. Circa 1976 baby!
This is Lo…smiling so happy. She loves stuff like this. I don’t know where she came from. Oh, wait, yes I do know where she came from!
Lo and a girlfriend drove it to the Beach on Monday…and had a blast. Kids these days!
You won’t soon catch me driving this to the grocery store. I think you have to have a traveling gas pump as you drive…plus you have to actually use the tire as a step-stool to climb into this…that won’t work with my clothing ensembles.
Lord help me. 🙂
I usually go with this thought process:
What’s his is ours.
What’s mine is mine.
But in this case, THIS is his. 🙂
Have a great weekend….and if you are on the road, watch out for these peeps!
