The car question posed last night wasn’t as easy to answer as I expected. I mean, I think about cars every day. In fact, I think about cars for multiple hours every day.
So when asked what I would replace my current car with if it suddenly died, I thought my answer would come swiftly and succinctly. Suddenly, though, my mind flashed with all the possibilities. I put myself in the mindset of this not being a hypothetical question and wondered what car I’d go buy tomorrow if I had to.
I had a dream a few nights ago that I was roaring through town in a new Jaguar, but after careful consideration, that’s not the car I ended up with in my fantasy purchase. I thought it would be.
Thinking about buying a car, even hypothetically, is a funny thing. It starts out as a simple thought, but sooner or later I end up browsing through the used listings and checking prices on cars I might, hypothetically, be interested in driving.
