Hiboy must have been busy promoting himself while I had my back
I think he is connecting to the internet from the
garage while I am at work... Hey, it's not like
he is lacking power sockets and extention cords, the garage
is filled with them... I know he's been up to something, that little
rascal, because last friday when I arrived at my local car cruise
night spot, more than one person stopped me to say:
|"Hey! Do you
know your car's photo is in the current issue of DRIVE! magazine?"
I was like:
Then I said
something like: "Are you SURE?"
Oh they were sure
alright... After running to the table where free DRIVE! magazines
were awaiting and grabbing me a copy and flipping real quick
through it all, I was sure, too.
There it was. A
picture of the culprit, comfortably lounging on his very own
private little beach... Sipping on a cool glass of Coca Cola...
Reading a vintage 1950's hotrod magazine... Basking in the
sunlight... No, I meant basking in the spotlight.. Literally! And
of course no sight of me. Somehow Hiboy had managed to take a shot
of himself and submit it to the magazine, unbeknownst to me... I
was not sure whether I should be elated or pissed off. I glanced
at him and there he was, sitting quietly in his parking spot, on
the far end of the parking lot, looking innocent as ever... Was he
whistling? Oh he knew he was caught alright!
I walked straight to
him. He shifted his weight from one tire to the other... Obviously
feeling a bit uneasy... And he should!
"What is this?" I
said, pointing an accusing finger at the photo... Hiboy's headlights
flickered ever so slightly , but I noticed it...
"Ah, you are lying to
me!" I said. See, my extensive experience LOL with boys has taught me
that if they blink while vehemently denying they cheated on you, that
means they did cheat on you.
I took a deep
breath... After all, I could understand why the little guy would have
wanted to be in the DRIVE! magazine, especially since the article
covered the Grand National Roadster Show and that ou tof hundreds of
show cars, only but a few had been selected to be pictured in the
"Well... Why didn't
you say you wanted to get a little attention? I would have helped
Come to think about
it, I realized as soon as I said it that my remark was dumb. Hiboy
obviously didn't need my help, he had done a fine job by his lonesome.
:) I should have probably remained pissed off at him for the rest of
the night but I love him too much, so I forgave him quasi instantly...
I looked at the article again and a sense of pride descended upon
me... My little guy, pictured in the GNRS coverage of DRIVE!
magazine... How cool is that?
PS: And for real now,
I think the reporter liked my beach display - and he should! It
only took us 6 hours to haul and lay down 400 lbs of sand! - and
so they published the photo... But don't tell that to Hiboy, he thinks
they published it solely on his DAZZLING GOOD LOOKS... And that's fine
