A Web Log from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity
December 27, 2018
My good friend Mike at Tire Discounters and I were engaging in some friendly small talk today when he asked me what my New Year’s Resolutions were for 2019. Fortunately, I had already considered various ways that I could be a better Phantom Tire Buyer with a secret identity.
Here’s my partial list:
- Don’t startle people. I can patiently explain the importance of tire safety and automotive maintenance. I don’t need to blurt it out. Even though it is SO CRUCIAL!
- Buy and sew on a proper fastener for my cape. The safety pin looks rather unprofessional.
- Cultivate a sophisticated sense of humor. Oftentimes people have to explain to me when they’re engaged in light-hearted banter or joshing.
- Get out more. Almost every Tire Discounters is surrounded by places where regular people congregate and get coffee, or shop, or go about the usual business of life. Caveat: when acting upon this resolution, always remember resolution #1.
