Mothers like to know things like that, so I told her about my newest crush: The Audi R8. I told her about the longitudinally-mounted V8 or V10 motor that sits behind the driver, the throaty exhaust note that gives me goosebumps, the beautiful design with those stylish side blades, and all the other things that get my heart rate up.
"Is it another two-seater?" my mother asked.
"Why yes, it is!"
"Can't you get a respectable car for once!" she exclaimed with some exasperation.
