Today we were going to town and we were just talking about everything. I don’t know how we got on the subject of thinking about a new vehicle. Don’t anyone get excited. Vince starts thinking about one maybe five years before he’s ready to buy one.
I went into my discussion about . . it’s hard to think about buying a car down the road when I know you’re not ready yet because we need to kinda know where we’ll be living and make sure it’s a car we can get serviced locally. The closest Honda dealer to us is 90 miles away so you see few Hondas around here and no one wants to work on them.
He didn’t respond.
Then I said . . and you know everything you read says this was the best year Highlander ever made and we’d probably be buying a car not nearly as good as this one . . just newer.
He still didn’t respond.
Then I said . . it’s kinda like talking about where we want to move and everywhere we look, we come back and say “we like it better here!” I’m used to everything here. I’m comfortable here. It’s getting harder to make big changes.
Finally he responded . . it’s like a wife. You never really want to get rid of one because the next one you get may not be as good as the one you traded in.
WHAT? Not a good analogy, Vince. Not good at all.

*John Wayne voice* You better be smiling when you say that, mister! /JWv
OMG! Haha. words …nah no words.. typical man I laughed as I imagined you sat there stunned as he was just getting a rise out of you. Reminds me of that sitcom, All In The Family! Archie Bunker would sit there, listen, then said some crazy things..
He does make your followers chuckle. Thanks Vince.

LOL Oh Vince! Does he know how lucky he is to still be alive?

We are down to one car. Ugh. He does not have to go anyplace but Lowes, the Home Depot, the barber, doctor and dentist-and on Thursday to have lunch with the boys. we go 98% of the time together. He does not go to the grocery store or shopping for clothes for me. But, he wants me to go everyplace with him. Boring. boring, boring. I would just love the time home alone. I could read, I could sew. Do laundry. Plan a vacation (which takes a lot of work). He wanted to sell his car because he never drove it anyplace but the golf course or the barber shop. It was a 2008 Chevy Malibu with 11,000 miles on it. But it was nice because I had a car and could go shopping or do whatever I needed to do. I don’t go shopping for clothes other than undies and bra’s, jeans from Costco or Kohl’s. I hate to shop for clothes. Last time I shopped for dressy clothes was about 12 yrs ago for a cruise. Still wearing the same thing but I really need to donate those and get something more current. I hate to shop but really need something new for my uncles memorial service and fancy family dinner in FL – my clothes are ancient. DH says go buy something. Sure, that is nice but I hate to shop!
PS, I get sent to buy all the cars too…he can’t be bothered!
Too funny! He still has a sense of humor. =)
amy makson says
LOL… his analogy…
Tell Vince that I can definitely use the same analogy with men!
That was pretty funny.
Just read that to my husband and his response? “That’s a DAMN good analogy! That’s why we’re still married after 34 years. Her husband is a wise man, she should hold onto him!”

Pat gets the hots for a new car sometimes. I wanted us to go ahead and purchase our Jeep that we have now, but he insisted we do a lease, and we did. Then when it came time for us to trade in or get a new one. There were no cars around that compared to what we had, even the new ones didn’t have all the perks this one does. And they all cost more! So we made a deal and we are purchasing the one we have had on the lease. I love our Jeep. We have had at least 4 and they are all very good autos. Our Grand Cherokee was great but we traded it in when we got this one. It is smaller but we don’t need anything any bigger. He can get his camera gear and I can get all my knitting in this one, so we are ok! LOL Phillip at Stanley’s will make you a great deal! Tell him you know us and he will treat you right.
I was drinking coffee when I read his response to you .. Needless to say … my computer screen needs to be cleaned up .. Hahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I tell my hubs all the time with a straight face: Its a good thing you are funny !!! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaa

Oh my. Sometimes one just has to say “that didn’t come out right!”
LOL, he is a funny man. =)
