Adventure Bowl
Will My Catholic Guilt Make Me Crack?

Sometimes in the life of the Adventure Bowl, it's not so much the adventure that's the story, but what happens after the adventure that's the story.

Yes, I may have test drove that Porsche as a way to put some sparkle and spontaneity into a life that was feeling a little routine and stale. But I was never planning on buying it. Come on! I was carrying an Old Navy bag as a purse for god's sake!

But apparently Scott from Porsche World is not taking "No" for an answer - repeatedly calling me and wanting to talk about my options about "little or no money down."

Which has my interest peeked because I totally have "little or no money down" to spend. And the streamlined body of that Boxster seemed to make my upper arms so much less jiggly...

And I wonder, say if a bought said Porsche and it was all a way to avoid the Catholic guilt of lying during the test drive, if there might be some tax write-off involved. Especially if I could find a bumper sticker that said, "Driving in Luxury for Jesus." That's charitable, right?

Scott keeps calling. Home, cell, email. I can't help thinking, I've certainly been pressured into more things only to come out with less (and yes, I mean exactly what you're thinking... unless your thinking something gross, then no, not what you're thinking. Wait, what are you thinking?)

I was going to post this tonight with more detail but my adventure for this evening involves scrubbing off my weekend spray tan and having my Catholic guilt assuaged by drinking imported beer. I'm determined to figure out how many Happy Hour beers can be drunk in a lady like way in under two hours.

I'm thinking three.

I just laughed my ass off... and then sent it to ten friends. But girl, yes on the beer and no one the Porsche!

LMAO! Let him down gently then move on to the Audi dealership. Thank you for continuing to inspire. So many of my girl friends read you now.

OMG, you've hit it on the head--how can I get a tax write-off for the 7 pints of Ben and Jerry's I eat when I'm procrastinating on a deadline?

Do NOT go for the Porsche. I've been debating on a new Chevy for weeks now... especially with the employee discount and how they want to get rid of their SUVs.

Just listen to the checkbook. Believe what it says (or doesn't say).

I sometimes too feel the catholic guilt. but seriously, I'd get a little firm with Scott and tell him to back the f off! ha ha

You could always use the line from the somewhat obnoxious radio commercial for another car company - "It's not you - It's the car you're selling." That way you won't feel bad for telling Scott no.

I always wondered what it would be like to stalk the sales people back. Ya know? Like call them during dinner to discuss the options on the car. After the conversation, be very non-committal and call them back the next day at another inconvenient time to talk about the length of the tire iron and how it doesn't really suit your needs.

Very very funny! Thanks for making me laugh on a very non-laughable morning.

*snort* tell him that you found a very lovely man to sell you a ferrari and have now moved on. the porsche is just 'so yesterday'.

elife said...

LOL....I vote no on the porsche and and yes on the beer because a car's value will only depreciate, but beer is a solid investment.

adventure grrl said...

Oh, so many AWESOME SUGGESTIONS! And now I'm thinking the best might be from Anonymous who said, "...tell him that you found a very lovely man to sell you a ferrari and have now moved on. the porsche is just 'so yesterday'."

I think I'm going to put that on my outgoing message. Yeah, an old beat up Jeep still has my heart... and not my pocket book so I'll let her still around for a lil' longer!

Tell him you're looking for something a little less lowbrow. ;)

Tell him you bought a ferrari instead. :p
