WARNING: Flying Cars May be Addictive

I keep finding new ways to use my Switchblade, and in spite of my efforts to resist, it’s become a habit.

To be honest, I don’t have to fly up to Northern California to see my kids for the weekend.  However, I know that I can because a flying car makes it easy. So easy that I know now, the darned things are addictive.  I don’t have to take my wife to her favorite restaurant over on the coast.  But, it’s hard to fight the urge to say yes when it’s so convenient.  I also don’t have to go enjoy the best spring skiing around – wherever in the Northwest it happens to be.  Pretty tempting though.

What am I going to do the next time my friend says, “Man, I just scored two tickets to the game and there’s no way to get there before the game starts!”  I guess I could close my eyes and say to myself “No! I do not have a flying car that could get us there in time!”, but then I know differently, don’t I?  I guess I could try to be happy and content to stay at home, even if it ended up being the best game of the season. I could do that….but I’d rather not.

I think this is one addiction that I don’t mind having.

    So agree! I keep thinking if I just had my Switchblade the location of my favorite restaurant, my favorite service providers and where my family lives is no longer an issue. Love it!

    As you point out, Martin, there are certain addictions that are good for us. I especially like addictions to great technology that makes our lives easier and enables us to create stronger connections with our family and friends.

    I too have kids in different parts of the country and I think of my Switchblade each time I want to fly in to see them on short notice. I would fly the 2 hours just to have lunch with my daughter in Chicago. And maybe stop and see friends in Indianapolis on the way back. Or a pick up golf game with a childhood friend in Nashville on a Saturday morning.

    It appears that we’ll be busy with the important matters of life once we have our Switchblades.
