Tricking your wife into thinking a Porsche 911 is “practical”

Dave: My car is acting up. I might have to get a new one.
Libby: What’s wrong with your car?
Dave: The headrest is broken.
Libby: Take it in. It’s under warranty.
Dave: I did.
Libby: Did they fix it?
Libby: Then it’s not broken. There’s nothing wrong with your car. You just want a new car.
Dave: Don’t you understand? This is the beginning of the end. My car is falling apart. We have to replace it now, while it’s still under warranty.
Libby: There’s NOTHING wrong with your car. What’s going on here? You’ve been looking at Porsche 911s again, haven’t you?
Dave: I can’t help it if my car is falling apart, and I need to replace it with something safer and more practical.
Libby: It’s a HEADREST. It is not falling apart. And a 911 is not more practical than your SUV.
Dave: So, anyway. What’s going on with you? Are you going anywhere this month? Can I give you a backrub?
Dave: I might have to go to Colorado to pick up a Porsche.
