You’ve seen the way he looks at his car. You have wondered, to your shame, if he loves you as much as he loves that thing. Would he wash you so lovingly? Certainly, the proud way he introduces it to people, has made you wonder about the time he forgot to introduce you at all. sure, he loves you. But that car might be your arch nemesis.

You could resent it. But why? A car is a simple creature, easy to dote on since it doesn’t argue or express its individuality. Be happy he has something that doesn’t ask for anything and that, even though it doesn’t, he’s the kind of guy who takes care of it anyway. This isn’t a reflection on you. It’s a reflection on him. He’s the kind of guy who takes care of children — and inanimate objects. You are lucky. Indulge him.

Get him some tools that aren’t an effort to dress him up or change him. If working on his car is his brand of fun, gift him some excellent fun.
