What do you get the kid who graduates Kindergarten? An Aston Martin, right??? (I’m not getting him the Bugatti Veyron until his Middle School Graduation.)
The day after Justin graduated Kindergarten, I got a call from Aldis Hodge. He wanted to know where I would be in one hour. I told him that I was working from the house while watching Justin. He responded, “I’ll be right over.”
Exactly one hour later, I heard an engine “growl” in my driveway…then stop…and finally, there was a knock at my front door. As I opened the door, I saw Aldis Hodge wearing a gigantic smile. In his hand was a key-less, automobile “key.” And finally, sitting in my driveway was one of the most beautiful pieces of machinery ever built – an Aston Martin DB9 Volante Convertible.
To make a long (and potentially self-incriminating with regards to Child Protective Services) story short, I slid into the driver’s seat while Justin sat on Aldis’ lap in the passenger seat. With a great amount of caution (and a quick review of my auto insurance policy), I revved the engine and backed out of the driveway. Together, we cruised the neighborhood in style! (Clients are always welcome to come to my home…as long as they roll up in style!)
I’d like the thank Aldis for bringing this beautiful masterpiece to my house! By parking that car in my driveway, he single-handedly made me look cool to my kid, raised my property value, and potentially made me a target for a neighborhood burglary. Thanks buddy!
