On the way to school today the 9yr old felt that he had something very important to share with me...
"Mom, you know, when I turn 16 I have decided that I want a black Hummer for my car. Yep. That's what I want."
"Wow. That's a big car. What if you don't get it? What's your second choice?" Inquiring minds had to know!
"Hmmm... I think a Corvette would work. And, you know, If I have to, I will take a Jeep - the old style."
And what did I say to my little day dreamer?
"Just keep saving your allowance sweetheart."
Little does he know that not only is a black Hummer not in his future but he will be lucky to get the car he was riding in. I am thinking that when he turns 16 in 2018 it will be a very used 2006 Volvo wagon. He has two brothers turning 16 before him! But, hey, it is black!
