I still can't quite believe it.
I tried to avoid it.
I came up with every stall tactic I could think of:
"You already bought an old one that you are supposed to be fixing up and it's been sitting on our driveway for three years."
"But I want to go back to grad school, and higher education trumps horsepower."
"Let's go to Europe this year and we can revisit this topic next year, okay?"
When those ran out, I started with the excuses:
"We don't need it."
"We can't afford it."
"You will kill yourself."
The stall tactics and excuses lasted for five years. And then Friday, something happened.
I ran out. Completely drew a blank. Had nothing else left to say.
And that is how this happened:
Yes, my friends, that is now sitting in our garage. It is Hubby's Christmas gift. For the next 50 years. And that is how we spent the day after Thanksgiving. Economy, you are welcome.
Happy Belated Thanksgiving to everyone.
