Amphi Jealousy... Pure & Simple

    Inspired by last weekend's Summer weather we
    joined our fellow amphibians for a swim. Steve
    mentioned something about "what is wrong with
    this picture," in an email containing his shiny red
    Amphi. Subtle clues of difference told me some-
    thing was amiss. So I had some reckoning things
    would be different, but I had no idea how different.
    They rolled up and immediately I noticed the high
    gloss red paint. "Did you wax?" I asked.
    "No," was the response.
    "Looks like a new one-piece front bumper," I spied.
    "No," he replied.
    Then I thought to myself - what happened to that
    black crinkle paint dashboard?? then it hit me!
    This guy bought ANOTHER Amphicar! He's got
    two red Amphicars! Oh man was I ever surprised.
    Who'd a thunk it? Two Amphis, both red. Now I
    know Al and Debra have a pair of White beauties too,
    but this just blew me and Mermaid away. Of course
    my Amphi is stoked to have another playmate so close
    to home, but I have to admit the shock was pretty
    awesome. One has to wonder how does one convince
    one's wife a second Amphi is appropriate? I mean
    what line do you use to even start a conversation
    about Amphi number two? "Hey honey, I'm going
    down to the market and buy another Amphicar, be
    back in half an hour." Or how about, "My dear,
    I think it's time we adopt another Amphi, ours is so
    lonely he needs a playmate." I don't know, maybe
    something more pitiful like, "Look it was only a
    matter of time, the temptation was too great, I'm weak

    you know, please forgive me for going behind your
    back and buying that second Amphicar." Maybe
    something more subtle like, "Happy Valentines dear?
    hope you like it." In any event, congratulations to
    Steve and his lovely, saintly, ever tolerant, mermaid
    wife Connie. You have a real beauty there? and
    the new Amphi looks great too.
    Happy Valentines Day to all our amphibious friends.
