my precious!

I understand that my obsession over my MINI has reached a new low. Or high. Whatever. And I've come to realize that if I'm not careful I might just turn from Smeagol into Gollum.

When it gets really bad, I find myself having internal arguments:

(Me) Gollum: It's been over fifteen minutes, you should call him!
(Me) Smeagol: I mustn't call him, he will call when he wants to call.
Gollum: No! Call! He TOLD you he'd call you back!
Smeagol: All in good time.
Gollum: Aaaarrggggh! My MINI... my PRECIOUS... it will never get here!
Smeagol: You LIE! It WILL! IT MUST!!!
Gollum: No, he hasn't called back - that means it hasn't been ordered - he is playing with you like a cat with a mouse!
Smeagol: Not listening. Not listening!



Gollum: The MINI will never come!
Smeagol: Oh, you'd LIKE that, now, wouldn't you? Then you could mope around for years, muttering how you were robbed of your dream car - No! It wil be here when it is ready! Off, you!

... And so on, and so forth.
