I got to spend yesterday afternoon with Queen Mum. She & I haven’t spent much time together lately and it’s always nice when I can push everything aside and go “play” for a bit.
I took her to the movies. She bought the tickets, I bought the soda & popcorn. We laughed through the movie and then, because she & Da had asked how much longer before we spring for a new paint job for “Kermie,” I asked her if she wanted to see what Hub’s getting me for graduation.
So we headed to the Volvo dealership to look at the C30s.
And we found the color I want and it was fully-loaded and I really, really, really wanted to test drive it but dug down deep for self-control and said, “Now Mum, I’m really serious. I’m not in the position to buy so I don’t want to test drive it. I don’t even want to talk to a salesperson right now.” She said that she did and I would just have to tag along.
In the end, she respected my wishes and we walked off the car lot without even sitting in the car.
I really, really, really did want to take it for a test drive, though.
Deep down inside.
