Nothing I Can Do About it Now

Marty, Jack – I have your license plate frames.

I also have a BRAND NEW CAR.

Did I mention that it’s BRAND NEW? And smells like cookies?

Also, because I am a good person, with excellent priorities, I have already given rides to both babies and animals.

His name is Lenny Honda. He looks just like this. I haven’t taken any pictures of my own yet.

Truth in Sales

Me (pen hovering above my checkbook): Ohhhh, this is hard. I’ve never written a check for this much money.

Salesman: If you want the car, you have to write the check .

Me: Fair enough. Fair enough.

Sometimes I Get Really Nervous For No Reason

Me: Oh! I almost forgot. I have one last request. I need some extra license plates frames.

Salesman: ???

Me: Two of them. For my Aunt and Uncle.

Salesman: Do they own Hondas?

Me (nervous): Yes! Of course! Ha ha ha! That’s why they want them. Oh, and they like your dealership’s name.

Salesman: Did they buy them here?

Me (panicking slightly): No. But they would have! If they lived in Austin. But they don’t. But they would have! Ha!

Salesman: No problem. I’ll be right back.

Me (shouting at his disappearing back): I’ll tell them if they ever move to Austin and need to buy a Honda, they have to buy it here! Like a contingency!

So, Marty and Jack, I’m afraid you are now verbally contracted to buy your Hondas from Howdy Honda, should you be shopping in Austin. Sorry about that.

I drove my friend’s four year old to school this morning, and he kept asking, in the way that only 4 year olds can, “Is this a van? Or a car? Or a van? Or a car?”

Nothing I said seemed to clear the matter up. Final verdict: VANCAR.



  1. does it actually smell like cookies, or is that your olfactory interpretation of it’s new car smell? did they bake a batch in there at the factory?

  2. Good work, Danar. This will get you a place at the left hand of
    G/god — who is, of course, lefthanded.
    And don’t forget to BRING my frame when you come in July. It would be terrible to have to turn around in Oklahoma or, worse yet, Iowa.
