Yes, I do have expensive tastes.

Blue carI was driving
my son home from school today when I spotted a lovely little blue car stopped
at a stop sign as we drove by.

'That's a nice car,' I remarked to my boy.

I've been trying to really look at
cars lately because I need to replace my van. My teen son knows more about cars than
I do so, when I see one I like, he tells me what it is so I can consider it as
a possible replacement vehicle.

This time he looked at me as if I was an idiot. (Yeah, he does that all the time sometimes.)

'Mom, that's a Maserati,' he said, his tone implying that I
should know this.

'Oh,' I replied. 'Those are expensive, right?'

'About 150 grand,' he replied.


When I got home, I looked it up. My boy was right; the local
dealership has a 2011 Maserati for sale for $140,000 CDN.

Okay, then.

Let's just say we're probably not going to be buying one of these,
especially not as an even trade-in for my six year old mini-van, any time

But, it's still a nice car.
