Head: Hey, there’s one of those Econoboxes you mentioned earlier.
Heart: They’re not too bad, but they are not as fun as Cute Sportscar.
Head: They get good gas mileage….
Heart: So does Cute Sportscar.
Head: You could carpool….
Heart: Not with that back seat.
Head: The Econobox has better safety features….
Heart: Yes, it does.
Head: You could carry a lot of stuff in an Econobox.
Heart: True. But if I buy something large, that’s what delivery service is for.
Head: The Econobox is practically new, and doesn’t have many miles on it.
Heart: You got me on that one. Most of the Cute Sportscars I’ve seen so far have had 20-90k on them. I will be putting a lot of miles on, due to my commute.
Head: An almost-new Econobox will cost about the same as….
Heart: ….a six-year-old Cute Sportscar.
Head: The Econobox has a 1.5 liter engine.
Heart: My current car has a 1.6, and is wimpy. Cute Sportscars have 1.8 or 2.0 liters. Wheeee!
Head: Handling is very important to you. Which car would handle better?
Heart: The Cute Sportscar. Duh.
Head: The Econobox has front wheel drive.
Heart: Cute Sportscars have rear wheel drive and are therefore much better balanced.
Head: A car says a lot about it’s owner. What would an Econobox convey?
Head: What would a Cute Sportscar convey?
Head: Which car would you be prouder to own?
Heart: A Cute Sportscar.
Head: Which car would be easier to pick out in a parking lot?
Heart: The Cute Sportscar. Although it is small, it is unique-looking compared to the Econobox. Econoboxes are a dime a dozen, and don’t stand out in a crowd.
Head: You will be spending a lot of time in your car. Which one would make you happier?
Heart: The Cute Sportscar.
Head: That’s really the bottom line, isn’t it? It’s important to get something that will make you happy. Otherwise, why bother?
Heart: Cute Sportscar FTW!
Life is short. Sometimes, you have to follow your heart.
