Today I have come to regret not being extraordinarily wealthy. Think about it…money makes everything easier. If you have money then you have a nice house with a nice garage, lawn, and maybe a pool. The rooms are big and the furniture is expensive. You have silk sheets and a water fountain that dispenses Hawaiian Punch. You have all the best electrionic equipment and you are the envy of everyone on the day of the big game. If you have money, your children go to a nice school with other wealthy boys where they learn important things like fencing and crew. And to top it all off…you can even get one of those black AMEX cards that everyone raves about. What is bad about this? If you can think of something please let me know because I can not see a downside to it.
I would love to go to the places that rich people go. All of the parties events. Being able to hire a car whenever you want and go to where ever you want at a moment’s notice. I would love to have hand-crafted leather Tunisia high-backed chairs mainly just because I like the sound of it….but if I had money I could waste it on things that I like the sound of. You hear rich people all the time complaining about taxes and people always wanting handouts. You hear about the “struggle” of the independently wealthy. I do not believe a word of it.
All of this brings me to the Aston Martin DB9 coupe. What I believe to be the most beautiful car ever made. It is almost simplistic in its beauty. The classic Aston grille, the sweeping lines along the sides, the wide tires combined with a low (but not too low) stance, and the elegant back end. Whenever I see this car it puts me on the verge of tears…it’s that beautiful. It does not have all the angles and sharp points of a Ferrari, nor does it look mean and boisterous like a Lamborghini. And unlike the other two, this car can in no way be seen as making up for certain male short comings. (more…)
