The Reactions of Each of My Family Members When I Pulled into the Driveway with My New Convertible.

I popped out of the car and said, "Well, whaddya think?"
  1. My wife was shocked.
    She mentioned something under her breath about a promised new vacuum and some trip to the Catskills, but I could tell she appreciated it. And she knows I earned it.
  2. My daughter seemed to like it.
    Honestly, though, I don't much understand the emotions of girls. They seem a bit silly and sad most of the time.
  3. My son, well, he was ecstatic.
    The first words out of his mouth were, "Jeepers, Dad, can we take her for a spin!?" So I threw him on my lap and away we went, up the coast, just two men exploring the open road. What a day - what a car!
