Conspicuous Car Consumption

9 Nov

Back in August 2017, I wrote about the Spirit House at my apartment.  I mentioned that this group of Spirits seemed to own a lot of vehicles, like a Mini Cooper and an Audi, as well as some trucks and a race car.  

The other day, while taking a look at the Spirit House for the first time during this visit, I noticed a couple of things.  First of all, there was a shiny new Ferrari parked on the deck.  There was also another Ferrari in the underground garage parked next to a Mini Cooper.  The other thing I noticed was that there were a lot more people guarding the entire Spirit House complex.  It almost seemed like this population explosion was leading to a serious overcrowding situation.

But then I got to thinking.  Maybe because there were now very expensive Ferarris parked here, there needed to be extra security to keep them from being stolen or vandalized. That makes sense.  Why a whole army of protectors is necessary is not so clear.  Maybe there needs to be a lot of protectors for insurance purposes.

Anyway, it seems like the Spirits in this House have moved to a more conspicuous high end car experience.  And with that comes the need for more security measures.  An army of protectors is standing by.

  1. This is a perfect example of how humans can peacefully co exist with vehicles. As long as nothing /nobody goes anywhere, there is little need for expense of energy and all is well.

    • Good points! I think the Ferraris are parked in the Spirit House more for show than for transportation. Maybe these Spirits are car collectors.
