Madison Avenue has a lot to answer for
This past week, as we were driving to swimming lessons, I looked in the rearview mirror and saw something unusual. I told the kids to take a look at the car behind us, an ancient Datsun station wagon with a kayak strapped to the top. "Where do you think he's going with that in Minnesota in January?"
To which my son piped up, "Perhaps his credit card miles expired. What's in your wallet?"
Capital One, mission accomplished...at least with one particular eleven-year-old kid.
(Minnesota is currently celebrating the "There is no such thing as global warming" festival...today the wind chill was -21 F.)
