I was shopping with Mark today and we were in a sports collectible place. He saw some NASCAR replica cars and asked me if I liked the #24 (Jeff Gordon) car. I told him yeah but I am a #88 (Dale Jr.) fan. Mark goes, “I think you should change to #24”. I told him that the reason I watch NASCAR with him is that he bought me a Dale Jr. watch last year and that was his favorite driver.
Mark’s reply cracked me up. “Yeah but he isn’t that good this year and I don’t think we should be cheering for a loser. Dad, it’s time to move on and pick a different car. #24 is the way to go.”
