Why My Husband Went to Miami Without Me Last Weekend

My husband went to Miami without me last weekend. It was to visit what we may soon be calling "the other woman" .... (Not this one.)


Yes, he bought a kit car. From eBay! (He's been wanting to build a car for...his entire adult life? The planets aligned and serendipity is allowing him to do it a little sooner than expected.) What you see above is the fiberglass body set on top of the frame. All the guts of the car, except the engine, are here (the transmission is stuffed down into the tires):



It's been stuck in a Miami warehouse for a year, due to customs issues, so the Chilean car-collector owner decided to sell it. Yes, the HH checked out everything thoroughly and it is all legit. It's shipping from Miami on Friday, and should be here in 7-10 days after that. I hope he gets the garage rearranged in time.

And he plans to build this in our garage. And I am letting him. And he thinks I am the most awesome wife in the whole wide world universe.

Building cars la la la does not compute la la la much like sports talk la la la sports and cars la la la.

You are an awesome wife.

I didn't say I understood it, I'm just letting it happen!

At least if he is in your garage, you can visit him frequently!!!

For this job, you need to make room for a small TV and a comfortable garage-sale/free couch, in the garage. Just throw an old sheet over it. That way you can visit him when you want but won't have to deal with a mess inside the house! (Just have him undress in the garage at the end of the day.)
