The Diary Of The Phantom Tire Buyer – Entry #21

Dear  Diary

A Web Log from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity

December 14, 2018

What a wonderful time it is right now to be in the Cedar Bluff neighborhood of Knoxville Tennessee!  Imagine, the streets are decorated in holiday regalia, people are going door to door and singing, and Tire Discounters just opened a brand new store!

As I pulled up to the store in the Phantomobile, I couldn’t help but espy a large crowd surrounding pleasant, very competent looking gentleman.  Of course I mused to myself:  it’s the legendary Dave Glovak!   You may have heard of Mr. Glovak, now the General Manager of the newest Tire Discounters, as he is quite famous among auto after-market aficionados throughout Tennessee.  Needless to say, I was a little nervous to approach a man of his stature.  But I’m happy to report that he could not have been nicer!  He even personally inspected my tires.  Wow.  It’s so gratifying to learn that the old adage is true:  the bigger they are, the nicer they are!

Importance Of Windshield Wipers

Wet Stopping DistanceOne of the most important safety factors when driving is a clear field of vision. According to the Federal Highway Administration, the inability to clearly see the road, other vehicles or potential hazards is the leading contributor to automotive accidents and personal injury.

When the seasons change, and the number of daylight hours are reduced, the possibility of an obstruction blocking your clear field of vision is significant. What if you are caught in a rainstorm, or a snowstorm, get splashed by mud or simply run into a swarm of locusts?

Well, the holidays are upon us once again.  Many curious people ask me how a Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity spends his holidays.  Do I prepare a feast in my lair?  Ha ha.  No, the holidays are times when my secret identity self celebrates with all my loved ones.  Yes, like everyone else, when I get home (my real home, not the Phantom Lair) and I hang up my cape and glasses, I try my best to relax and devote my full attention to friends and family, whose identity must remain secret.

Oh sure, sometimes the Jacksons, who live just across the street on Sentinel Lane, will stop by for a non-alcoholic wassail.  They always josh about calling my number, 555-6754, before coming by, but I assure them that it’s not necessary among good neighbors!

Well, my good compadre Mike over at my local Tire Discounters certainly “pulled one over on me” as they say.  When he asked me if I liked Big Bucks, I replied that I did.  I seldom use slang terms, but I felt confident in following along with Mike’s idiomatic usage.  Well, the joke was on me!  Because just yesterday I saw a billboard with huge buck DEER on it!  I had to chuckle.

Little did I know that he was talking about saving large male deer!  Not to worry, though, as I’m planning to get back at my good friend.  I remember when I was a young lad in the schoolyard and a friend asked me to pull his finger.  I did so, and everyone laughed and laughed.  So, next time I see Mike, I’m going to ask Mike, innocently enough, to pull MY finger.  I’m sure everyone will laugh, though I’m not sure exactly why.
