I started the week with bootcamp (and being laughed at for asking if I could just do crunches instead of the scissors to which my instructor replied that he can’t remember having been given the choice in his army bootcamp of being able to throw stones at the enemy instead of bullets/ grenades. Maybe a little bit of an extreme comparison but I could see he had a fair point and the classes are great). I also began trying to persuade Luke to get a cheaper car to run, as we have just booked our holiday. So, this evening he comes back home in this.
A Chevrolet Camaro, AKA Bumblebee, which also just happens to be the pace car for the Indy 500.Well, that is what you get for sending a car- loving male to go and get a sensible car. Really? This is Luke’s version of sensible. Words fail me.
After getting over the initial shock of Luke’s choice of a more financially sustainable car I decided to see what the attraction was. We went for a spin in our new car, whilst Luke was trying to persuade me that this was a much better car than the Jeep and a good choice as it costs less to run. Personally, I think he was hypnotised by the mechanical folding roof, which I have to say is much more appealing for me than the Jeep’s one we had to lift off and on.
I have to say, I am now mildly concerned about Luke getting another speeding ticket in this car as it goes very fast, very quickly. Umm. This might have been another factor in Luke persuading himself that this really was the best car to choose.
