What Chicks Dig
At some point in the evening my mother inquired why all this was important. The answer, of course, was to impress chicks. That really got my brother and his friend grinning.
Paul, the friend, leaned forward and asked the pair if they knew what kind of car chicks dug the most? They made some guesses about high end sports cars that no one not a rock star or someone having a midlife crisis really drives. "No, what chicks really dig are cars that run!"
All the real adults at the table burst out laughing. The two kids, not so much. They failed to see the humor in it, especially since neither of their cars actually ran. And to boot, even if their cars did run neither of them held valid driver's licenses since they both lost them to youthful shenanigans. They didn't have steady income to actually do all this mythical work on their cars or to do that other thing that chicks dig: go out on dates.
The Fine Print: That was when I knew my little brother had finally grown up and realized that reliable cars were more important than shiny gizmos and thumping stereos. It is many, many years later and I still don't think my nephew has figured it out yet.Cards and part from Club Scrap "Birds of a Feather" kit.
