Someone I am is waiting for my courage


G is getting his own car, now that he's car dependent. We went to the dealer today knowing we were going to go play the car game. It's a lot easier game to play when you aren't under any time pressure.

Highlights include:

Us making him wait for us to talk outside.
G planning ahead of time to get an ice cream sandwich on the first "I'll go talk to my boss." (they have free ice cream in their waiting room.)
When he said, "it's just $200" me saying, "well that argument goes both ways."
Me giggling. Giggling a lot, as he played out the script (I'm not sure what he thought of all that.) I really couldn't help it when he did the melodramatic, "Really, you're going to walk out for $100, what if I put $50 of MY OWN MONEY down?" (G and I had already discussed if they'd come down another $50.)

It was actually kind of fun, because we didn't NEED a car right that day. Because cars are fungible. Because we didn't have any appointments and because we expected the game.

I feel little bad about all the giggling I did.

Once again I think we got an ok price. If we were experts at the game, I'm sure we could have gotten lower, but I'm not sure I ever want to be good at the game.

Now to wait for their swap, then we get to see the actual car we'll be buying. We're getting a subaru impreza.
