From the corner booth...

I love getting affirmations on the choicess I make in my life, specially when people love giving me advice to do otherwise. My older sister loved Japanese cars while my younger sister used to love German cars. I've always had American cars; I think that the cars I like happened to be American, but my number 1 requirement was always functionality. All of my cars were passenger cars but always fit 5 people and could carry either skis or 2x4's. And they were fun to drive. I love to drive so I usually end up giving my friends rides to events.

I was at the U-Haul truck rental place the other day. While I was waiting to drive off with the rental truck, I saw some young Oriental/Asian guy come out of the store with about five flattened empty boxes. He opened the passenger door of his Porsche Carrera and spent a bit of time wondering why he couldn't get his boxes into the car. Then he went around to the driver's side, opened the door, and still couldn't get his boxes into the car. (the Carrera is a two-seater, made for speed and handling, not for cargo). I just sat there and laughed and laughed and laughed. My 2007 4-door Grand Prix with the super-charger and heated seats suited me just fine.

I've always wondered: Assuming all other factors not being relevant at this time, do women consider a young guy with a Porsche Carrera as a hot date prospect, or do they think that this guy isn't ready for a girlfriend, marriage, or children?

See you on the dance floor.
