Beautiful! I love Acura interiors in general.

20K overnight? You must have quite a potential nest egg there. smile

More like running high risk, and watched closely. 10 years trading experience preparing to do that for retirement. Just haven't hit the minimum goal I've established for retirement yet. If I don't do high risk, I'll never be able to retire (comfortably).

Been jumping in and out of things. Last time I didn't jump out in time, was hoping for more. But I gained a little. Experience has taught me to always sell at a profit, even if it's a small one as the stock is falling towards my buy point.

Bulls make money, bears make money, but pigs get slaughtered. How true, I was trying to be a pig.

My last vehicle was a minivan, and I really liked it. With vehicles, I'll always go for function over form. It's just hard to argue with the versatility. Either I can hold a lot of passengers, or I can take the seats out and hold a lot of crap. What's not to love about that? But this could be part of why I'm single.

Single man with a minivan. Either I give you cheers for brave nonconformity or cheers at a brilliant add-on to your plot to score soccer moms. Either way, no one should be worried about why they choose what they choose. Even if I'm admittedly guilty of it at times.

I do like the interior Tom. Oddly enough, I was in that exact vehicle just yesterday driving with a colleague to a meeting. It may have been off by a year or so but your pics are even the same color. I was shotgun and very comfortable. I would not probably have taken note of that except I was scrutinizing the layout after your announcement.

It gives you something to talk about right off the bat....

INT. STARBUCK'S - MORNING

Soccer mom standing in line, sees a man parking his minivan outside. Her (attempted) surreptitious gaze follows him as he enters the cafe and gets in line behind her.

She orders a grande decaf coffee with room for cream and heads to the cream and sugar station. He joins her there shortly afterward with his venti mocha, which he starts dusting with nutmeg.

WOMAN

I noticed you pull up outside. Is that the new 2013 Honda Odyssey?

MAN

Yeah, it's got the three-row side curtain airbags with rollover sensor and one-motion 60/40 split 3rd-row magic seat. I love it.

WOMAN

Doesn't it also have dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags?

MAN

Sure does.

SHORT PAUSE AND A SMASH CUT TO...


EXT. OUTSIDE THE MAN'S MINIVAN

We see the minivan rocking with smeamed up windows.

Not to take away from Peter's narrative, but we did manage to drive to Indiana and back in a Honda Civic. All 5 of us.

Today's Civic is probably bigger than yesterday's Accord, fwiw.

Ain't that the truth. My 2001 Civic feels about 5x less nimble than my old 1991 Civic.

On the other hand, I'm not sitting on the ground, I have air conditioning, and it's not smushed.
