This morning my husband received the following e-mail from the car dealership where he bought his car:
"Happy Birthday" from your friends at Hoffman Honda!
I hope you and P- are getting along well and that P- is taking good care of you. If you have any bumps and scratches, aches or pains, just come in and see us. We are here to care for you. As always if there is anything I can do, please call me at Hoffman Honda at 860-651-3501.
I hope you and your owner have an excellent day!
J-, Sales Manager
He thought the e-mail was the queerest thing ever, though I suspect he secretly liked it. Me? I kinda think it's neat. I told the CRV it should send a thank you note, something along the lines of:
Thank you for the birthday wishes. I am doing well and P- is taking good care of me. Unfortunately P- refuses to buy me an amplifier and subwoofer for my birthday, something about kids and their stereos. I'm really bummed. He did, however, say that if someone gave me an amp and subwoofer for my birthday, he'd let me keep 'em. I'm ACHING for them. Maybe a kind "uncle," like the sales manager who handled my adoption, could hook me up, wink wink, nudge nudge.
