The Westfalia Project
The Best Obsession… blog #3 – The Westfalia Project
Late one night on our commute back home, Brian had noticed that Gilberto’s Westfalia had been cleaned up a little, and the odds and ends that he was storing inside it were all cleared out. We panicked. Was Gilberto going to sell it? Was it already sold? We scoured the Volkswagen ads on Craigslist to see if it would pop up, and sure enough, there it was. There was always this thought in the back of my mind that Gilberto’s van would always be there, waiting for us to claim it as our own, but there it was for all of Colorado to see. There was no doubt that some lucky VW enthusiast would also be able to see past all it’s imperfections and jump at the opportunity to own it. The thought of losing the Westy was enough to convince us that we absolutely needed it… If we couldn’t obsess about the van at the end of the block, then what would we have to obsess about? I suppose we could have focused our attention to our lawn or to the mouse that lives in the flower pot, but the weather will take care of the lawn and I’m too sensitive to kill the mouse, so were back to the Westy obsession.
