Shazam, Darrell’s best mate from work has bought a new car and couldn’t wait to bring it round to show it off to Darrell ……
Let’s just say that Darrell was just a teensy bit green with envy!
“If I could drive, this would be the car for me ….” he declared, “….. only in red and with dangly dice in the front!”
“There is something so very, very romantic about a convertible, being able to drive along with the wind in your hair, sun glasses akimbo and your right elbow resting at a jaunty, devil may care angle on the open window, the sun glinting on your watch!” he sighed
And then, before you knew it, they were off for a test drive, Darrell still in his slippers would you believe, which I pointed out later was far from de rigueur for two rufty tufty boys out to impress……….. but Darrell just brushed it off with a shrug, saying that he was confident in his own skin, and could “quite frankly” carry off the slippered look, “with aplomb”! What is he like?
But sadly there was none of this hair blowing in the wind, sun roof malarkey …..……. as it was pouring with rain and Shazam was certainly not going to get his newly steamed upholstery (which I noted was in Wolves colours), damp!
