Fortress of Solitude

I think I might be getting an idea of what it would be like to be a beautiful woman, in that odd boring men keep coming and talking at me.

Building a kit car should have been a perfect hobby for an OCD misanthrope, it being mainly solitary and concerned with tools, components, following instructions and meeting formal standards. Unfortunately the car is interesting and handsome and generates a lot of interest from the public. People keep inviting themselves into the garage to talk about cars.

Last week I got a ginger stalker. He's sent me notes, visited the car, invited me to go to an automotive lecture, and is now pestering me for my email address. As he's got a car trailer and a towing vehicle he might have to be the most interesting and charming person I've met – until my car is roadworthy.

  1. I think you might be finding out what it's like to be a slut, at least let him buy you dinner before he uses his trailer on you. I look forward to hearing about the "drive of shame" when you no longer need him to tow you around
