Too Late

Posted by laura on Jun 19 2009 | Fun

Nearly every day, Hot Wheels runs the numbers.

“How much money do we have? If we sell our house AND our Mazda 5, can we buy a Ferrari?”

He questions. He plots. He ruminates. Nearly every day.

So yesterday we’re strolling the neighborhood together and we pass a red convertible. “That’s a nice Miata,” he says, and he’s thrilled that standing on the curb next to it, he’s almost taller than it is. A man walking down the opposite sidewalk gives me a smile and calls over, “Watch out – pretty soon he’ll be wanting a Ferrari.”

It was just like the moment last week when we were standing in the Apple store and a guy said to me, “Pretty soon he’ll be dragging you in here.”

    Maybe the guy just though Hot Wheels hadn’t gotten around to thinking Ferrari TODAY yet….he wasn’t necessarily implying that that HW had not yet ever wanted a Ferrari.

    And I thought it was Tom who drags you into the Apple store?
