    Passed a Milestone


    Yesterday I broke a promise that I made to myself years and years ago:

    I bought a minivan

    That isn't the worst part

    The worst part is that I actually like it. It is so practical, roomy, full of storage and cupholders, and it drives so well. Best of all I don't owe a cent on it. Now I fully own two automobiles (which is a good idea no matter how old you are. Car notes are a b!tch).

    The idea of buying a car for its practical implications, as opposed to buying one to attract and nail girls is a strictly adult concept.

    Despite having my three children I still felt more like a younger man than a man quickly approaching middle age. Well, no more, now I am officially a family man.

    On the bright side, the purchase of a mini van by a male almost always preceedes the purchase of a Corvette. I always wanted a Corvette.

    That is a great analogy, spot on.

    Thanks for the support. I delayed buying the minivan by driving a Ford Explorer for a few years. I really like SUV's, but at this point I really need a third row seat. So it was either a large gas guzzling SUV or the Caravan.
