No longer a tourist

Until today I felt like a tourist in Ferraristan. I did not feel like an owner, a citizen. When I took the car to the dealership for service those feelings vanished. I am now a citizen of Ferraristan. I have voted, I’m committed, I drank the Kool-aid. Buying the car, taking it to the track, washing it, putting a new floor in my garage for it, none of these things made me feel like a Ferrari owner. Taking the car in for service, discussing it’s problems, being surrounded by other broken Ferraris, now I feel like an owner, now I feel like a worthy steward of my car. Silly, sure, but I am happy the car went in for service now it’s my car. With the next Ferrari, its going in for service within the first month weather it needs it or not.
