Tony: “Remember a few weeks back when I told you Angie and I were planning to keep the [sedan] for at least ten more years.”
Todd: “I am just laughing because that sentence foreshadows that you are going to tell me something really funny. So what happened to the car?”
Tony: “Well, Angie and I traded it in for a minivan.”
[Long pause of silence]
From that point on Tony explained to me the circumstances behind how he ended up the proud owner of a Ford Freestar and how he honestly believed it was a rational decision. While he was talking, I could not help but think that I had crossed a threshold and my life would never be the same.
