A Chance To Be The Bandit

More than a few men around my age are going to be spending just a bit of time day-dreaming over the next two weeks.  I doubt we’ll all be forthcoming in admitting it, but look behind the eyes of any men you know between, say 47 and 60, and you’re apt to see a hint of a devilish glint.  A few might even start growing cheesy mustaches, or wearing cowboy hats and pearl-snap shirts, or calling their best friend “Snowman.”

Why?  In a little less than two weeks the car is going up for auction–not the only one of it’s kind, that’s still what it is: the car.

So sing it with me, fellow Xers–“East bound and down, loaded up and truckin’, we got time for one more bandit run”
