decided a couple of years ago that I loved the look of the convertible Audi. I found the coolest pictures of the little car I wanted and I hung them up on my vision board. I even taped a couple pics up on the wall in the living room so I could see it when watching tv or visiting. At times it gave me the chance to talk about it when people would ask “why the car cut out on the wall Deanna?”
A little over a year went by, maybe a year and 1/2. There was a terrible hail storm and our reliable old Honda Accord was pummeled. We called the insurance, filed a claim, and ended up getting more for the car than we paid. Then I paid the salvage cost and sold it for a little more money. With that settlement we went looking for a car to put a downpayment on.
I found a car on the lot that I wasn’t familiar with. A Volkswagon Eos. Oh it was love at first drive! I knew that was the kind of car I was going to buy. The one that we drove was over priced and under optioned. I wanted one that had the heated seats, premium stereo, and the stick shift!
We found a nicely priced used one on line. Oh. Oh. Ooooohhhh. It had a 6 speed, turbo drive, with tinted windows, upgraded rims, and a car cover!! Wow. We paid just a little under blue book for it. We drove it home from Texas and loved every summer hot moment in the little red car.
When we got home I lamented to my husband just a bit while looking at the Audi pics that were still on the wall.
“I love our new car. I just don’t understand why I couldn’t manifest the Audi. I love what we got though. I just wonder why I couldn’t manifest the one I pictured.”
My husband told me to go to the garage and open the hood, look at the motor and tell him what I found. I did. All the parts under the hood had the Audi symbol on them. I had actually gotten the Audi I wanted on the inside with the Volkwagon symbol on the outside.
I later found out that Audi doesn’t make a hard top convertible. Audi only makes soft tops. I don’t like how often those get cut with a knife by ne-er-do-wells so that was out of the question for me.
I got exactly what I had asked for, and I couldn’t see it when it showed up! 🙂
