In appreciation for his helpfulness, I took a good friend and colleague to lunch at Nobu as a thank you.  We had very tasty food, but that is not the point of this post.  It's about the cars.  Since we drove to Malibu for graduation and the first summer school block, we went to Nobu in our Subaru Impreza with bike racks.  At Nobu, where $10 valet parking is mandatory, the lot was flush with high-end cars, including Teslas which now seem to be de rigueur in Malibu.  When we came out, there was a blue Bentley convertible in the handicapped space - I guess one must have a blue Bentley to go along with the blue handicap parking tag.  I did not take the picture below, but you get the idea - that is not a Mustang horse. 

However, the best part of the whole scene was my friend's response as he looked over the cars and watched our Subaru being pulled up by the valet - he started to sing the Sesame Street song "One of these things is not like the others."  Still chuckle when I think of this.

No need to feel inferior. Just tell them you know Gary Busey. Or better yet, quote them Romans 12:16 "Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but ASSOCIATE WITH THE HUMBLE..."

Hey, BB - I was not feeling inferior :-) Indeed, I was feeling a bit smug knowing that the most unique car in the lot was our Subaru!!
