A Web Log about my secret identity from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity
The other day I left my lair for a trip to the dentist. As a Phantom Tire Buyer with a secret identity, when going about my day-to-day life I eschew my cape and glasses and can move about at will – and, I thought, with complete anonymity. In the small parking lot outside the dentist’s office I performed my usual reconnaissance, casually checking each vehicle or improper tire wear. What I discovered there was quite disturbing. “Don’t make a scene” I told myself.

It may come as surprise to many of my readers who think of me as a cool, calm and collected Phantom Tire Buyer with a secret identity, but I suffer from chronic hypertension.

A Web Log about “Details Matter” from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity
I was coming back from the health food store the other day in the Phantomobile, when I espied a colorful and eye-catching billboard! It said, “At 70 miles per hour, details matter”. Wow, said to myself, wiser words were never spoken! Just then I saw that the billboard was put up by my good friend Chip Wood! It was my friends at Tire Discounters spreading the good word!
