Jedi Mind Tricks.

Hello All, I'm sure I was the victim of Alfa Jedi Mind tricks today! Let me explain.

I went to a garage to look at a Toyota..."Too small" I said. "Oh" said the Jedi masquerading
as a salesman. "Shame" he said. "Mind you I do have the Alfa" he transmitted to my brain indicting to the dark corner of the showroom. “Well perhaps I should just take a look” I mumbled sidling over. An Alfa 156 tspark sports wagon stared back, looking all shiny and exotic.

The doors were opened showing the leather, red dials and Alfa Logo. Wouldn’t hurt just to have a sit in it I thought…“Would you like a drive?” said the wicked salesman. By now I resembled Mr Toad making revving noises. The car was started and wheeled out, “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for”, “What?” I said. “Nothing.” said the salesman.

The car had been sitting for a while but within a mile I was ginning inanely at the smooth acceleration and handling. So much so I decided to ignore the huge pile of history and receipts especially as the top one showed the last service cost £1100...! Then the terrible wicked Jedi said “I’m sure I could find an Alfa key ring around here somewhere.”

I had succumbed to the force and the allure of an Alfa; I pick it up Monday… Anyway that’s the story I tld the Wife and I’m sticking to it.

As well as the Jedi mind tricks I am afraid you will soon be infected by the Alfa Virus. Unfortunately there is no cure. the only way to relieve the symptoms is to drive your Alfa on a regular basis. Again I have more bad news, doing this will leed to side effects such as euphoria, feelings of intense pleasure and the inability to remove smiles from your face.

The time had come, I knew as I checked on my anniversary edition Alfa Romeo chronograph watch. I adjusted the Alfa cufflinks and set the Alfa baseball cap to a jaunty angle. Taking a deep breath I strutted into the garage office and announced I was ready to collect my first Alfa. Catching my reflection I could only admire the cut of my jib through the darkened lenses of the Alfa sunglasses. Producing my bank card from the calf leather Alfa wallet with enamel logo I finally did the deed and paid my money. A few formalities such as completing the V5 were quickly completed using the Alfa gold nibbed fountain pen and I was away.

After adjusting the leather seat and slotting a CD into the changer (Vivaldi, I know, but it was the only Italian musician I had) I sped off. So far so good.

You may be picking up that I spend far too much time on Ebay. Well your right but I think I’ve caught the bug. The only worry I have is that ever since coming out as an Alfa wannabe every friend I tell performs a sharp intake of breath before informing me my new car will be spending far more time in the garage than on the road etc etc. The funniest thing is none of them had ever owned an Alfa Romeo………
