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.
