Justin likes girls...but he LOVES his jeep (and you can see from his face he hates pictures). He can often be found lifting it, 4 wheeling it, cleaning it, parking it straight up on a snow bank/dirt bank/construction something or other, or adding parts to it that I don't even know the name of or what they do. He went to Moab earlier this year to take it on some "sweet" trails. This rattling on is all to prove a point. He thinks spending money on his jeep is great, it will always be around, it always looks "hot", and he can make it into exactly what he wants. On the other hand, girls are different. He would rather spend his money on something he knows will last - and a girl is just not it. However, I am really good at making deals with Justin to manipulate him into doing what I want him to do. As I said, "Money talks with him!" (We know this from past haircut blog, right?). I told him it is not fair for him to continue depriving all those cute high school girls from going on a date with him. I told him in no uncertain terms he had to attend at least two boy-ask-girl school dances this year - and that I would help pay for them. Lucky for one cute girl, he listened. He took a cutie to Homecoming and I think they both looked fabulous. The day of the dance he told me he wanted to wear white suspenders and a white tie...hmmmm where can I get that?...of course at the distribution center. Very white and very cheap! They had a wonderful time and I hope he will recognize girls are not a waste of money...they are the essence of life!
