Around the 5:30 mark

the good feeling doesn’t last…
we get used to having a Mercedes
it’s spectacular
it’s better than sex the first week
it’s better than a meal at a great restaurant the second week
it’s pretty damn good the third week
and after that it’s just your car
and people aren’t satisfied with good, they want to feel great
we stop getting a big kick out of the good things we already have
