LA MALDICIÓN de conducir un coche espectacular...
Buying gasoline takes a good half-hour. Everyone wants to chat me up. It's always the same questions: How much does it cost? How fast will it go? Who makes it? The answers are never good enough. I actually had to explain to one particularly dim bulb that Audi is, in fact, a car manufacturer. What planet is this guy living on? Scary. I eventually make up outrageous answers—answers that seem to be more in line with people's expectations. They're more than willing to believe that an R8 can go 250 mph and is handmade in Switzerland by Enzo Ferrari's illegitimate granddaughter.
