Do the Cars&Coffee treatment. See some boring old cars. And some boring new cars.
Here’s a boring middle-manager’s car he’s welcome to drive.
My friend’s dad (75! years old, doesn’t look a day over 60) had told his son that his dream car was a grey BMW.
So of course I washed, waxed, and shopvaced mine, so he could take it for a terribly boring drive. Because if you can, you really, really should.
Love your friends. And love their parents. And if you can give them a genuine smile, do.
