Well, I guess that I warned my wife, and she warned me right back. She isn’t aware of how seriously I’ve been considering getting a C5 Corvette, because she previously told me that I didn’t “need” two cars.

Round one of negotiation for a 2003 Z06 did not result in very similar values. So, I decided that today being my birthday was the best time to risk upsetting my wife about this, and I just told her:

“I almost bought myself a Corvette for my birthday today.”

Her response was “I would have killed you.”

It’s going to be tough when the time comes.
