An early birthday present.

It's not a baseball card, but it's just as cool.

My birthday isn't for another month (5/2), but a friend is in the process of moving and sent my present early (as opposed to losing it in the move).

I've always loved Matchbox cars, but have never let myself buy any. Because I know that I'd be hooked. But this one is special, since it's exactly like my car (except my spoiler is differet... less like a park bench).

I've been looking for one of these for a long time and I'm not sure where she found this. Oh well, I'm a happy boy.

But I'm not sure of the proper way to store these things as an adult. I assume I'm not supposed to take it out of the package and run around the house going VROOOM VROOOM. BUT I'm almost 28 years old and I'm excited about a toy car, so there's no telling what I may end up doing with it.

She also sent me some nice shot glasses and a toy for my cat, but the cat seems more interested in (and is currently sleeping in) the box that it all came in.

Before I collected cards, I collected matchbox cards. That's what my first allowance money went to.

It's odd because I couldn't care less about cars now.
