Easily Distracted by Bright Shiny Objects

Fun to look at, but would I seriously want to own one?  No. 
I prefer something lower in maintenance. I like my car, but I don't obsess over keeping is clean and shiny.  It is there when I need it, but it is not the center of my life. I don't worry that someone might touch it, or scratch it, (it has been hit twice in 5 years.)   I have owned a lot of cars (like 15 of them in 40 years.)  Some were junk, some very nice.  In the end, my middle of the line, easy to drive, no need to be obsessed over it car does everything I need.  

Still I like pretty cars, I like fast cars, like classic luxury cars.  I am easily distracted by them. But I don't need to own one.  I do have a soft spot for a soft top - I should own a convertible while I can still enjoy it.  

What are you easily distracted by? 


  1. since 1972, I have owned 5 cars. I am still driving #5 (since 2006). a car gets me from point a to point b.

    pretty yarn distracts me. or good chocolate (no rubbish).
