I Was Recently Asked….

This may or may not be blog worthy but I was recently asked the following question on a work phone call which has me wondering how others would answer.  The question was what is your favorite material thing that you currently own?

What do I say?

Oh my gosh, after the question was asked, my mind started working in overdrive, what do I say?  The people which are on the other line are people I work with on a regular basis and I didn’t want them to think badly of me based on my decision (i.e. too materialistic).  So do I go with the obvious answer that most people might say….their smartphone?  While I am the first to admit that I might go a tiny bit crazy each time a new iPhone is released, I really don’t feel that it is my favorite material item.

As I sit there and think I can feel the panic start to set in as the facilitator of the call starts asking for volunteers to share.   No one is speaking up, maybe they are having the same panicky thoughts as I am.  


I cannot believe it took me 5 minutes, which I might add felt like 5 years, to come up with something but I finally did.  I mean it is supposed to be my favorite thing so why was it so hard to think of one.  What I decided is that my car is my favorite material item.  I absolutely love my Ford Fusion which I bought a little over a year ago.

Now that you know my car is my favorite thing, I can share a little-known secret about me, I love cars.   Especially muscle cars, find me an old Camaro, Mustang or Chevelle and I will be in awe.  I love the way old muscle cars sound and smell.  Weird I know, but hey what can I say.

Now old cars are not an everyday sight but I am not picky I also like any newer car that has a sportier look.  Which do I think my Fusion does, however, I may be biased.  

When I was car shopping I knew I wanted a Fusion, in black, with black rims, a sunroof and fog lights.  We went to every car dealership in town and found lots of Fusions but none with the specs I wanted until the very last place.  I knew the second I saw it that the car would be mine.  What I didn’t know was how much I would love the car after I bought it.

If you are in the market for a 4 door sedan check out the Ford Fusions you won’t be disappointed.

Your turn

Now I want to know, what is YOUR favorite material item that you own?  This is a no judge zone so anything goes, share away!

    what a hard thing to decide! I thought of cellphone at first too (but that photo underneath may have affected my decision)… in our daily lives, we need so many things for different purposes. now, how about this question… what food could you never give up? i might go with pizza because i eat it all kinds of ways, cold out of the fridge, with meat, with vegetables, cheesy mess, etc. there’s a lot of variety in there!

      A pizza was the first thing that came to my mind also. Is it sad that I will order a large pizza just to eat over a couple of days for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

    I bought this scrappy old laptop recently. It’s an acer travelmate b-113. It’s small and even uses windows 8 but I love it anyway. It’s a life saver for me.

      I can definitely relate, my laptop is a close second as I am on mine all the time.
