In yesterday's mail was a slick 3-fold Fiat brochure addressed to K. Inside was a $500-off certificate if she buys one by August 31st.
I went with her to a doctor's appointment today and as we were driving north back home on Central Expwy she (not so) casually slipped in, "Why don't we drive up to McKinney and check out the new Fiat's?"
"But sweetie, your car has only 27,000 miles on it, and you only owe $3K. Let's pay off your car and a couple of other debts we have, THEN you can buy a new Fiat."
"Well....could I get a cabrio?" (Convertible)
"Could I get one in that cool silver/gray color?"
"Any color you want, babe."
