I arrive at Arte's at my usual time and see that he is standing outside waiting for me. As I approach, a large smile spreads across his face.
"Is everything okay Arte?" I'm a bit worried.
"Everything's fine. C'mon around here. I've got something I want to show you." He leads me around the outside of the building to the empty lot next door.
"Oh, no." I think to myself, "What farming is he doing now?" We come around the corner, and, well, I'm not exactly sure what happend at that point. I may have passed out for a moment.
The next thing I know is that I'm laying on the ground and Arte is leaning over me, shaking me by my shoulders. "Merthyn, Merthyn. Wake up buddy. C'mon, get up."
"Wha, what happened?" I stammer as I struggle to stand.
Arte laughs. "I think the shock knocked you out."
"Shock, what shock?" I jump to my feet and look around expecting to see exposed wires or a downed power line. "What shocked me?"
He laughs again and points over my shoulder. "Those."
I turn around to see what he is talking about and in front of me, spread out as far as the eye can see, is a parking lot full of bright yellow Humvees!!!
Feeling weak in the knees I sit back down and lean against the side of the building. "Arte! This is amazing! How did you manage to do this?"
"I thought you might like it. I've been trying to put this together for quite a while, and a few of my contacts finally came through for me. It's not easy, you know. There's a big demand for an item like this. I have to make sure that I have enough inventory before I can make it available."
"Arte, you should have warned me before we came around that corner." I start to stand up. "I'm not sure my heart can handle a shock like that."
"Well, then, maybe you should stay sitting down, because I've got something else to show you." He reaches in one of the pockets on his old bomber jacket and pulls out a set of keys. "This one's for you." He tosses me the keys and points out the first Humvee in the line. It has a large red bow tied to the roof.
"For me, you mean you're giving it to me?" I feel faint and I'm afraid that I might pass out again. "Arte, you're amazing. When you said you'd set one aside for me, I had no idea! This is incredible." I pause to catch my breath. "Are you doing this for anyone else?"
"No, of course not. Who do you think I am, Oprah? This one is for you to thank you for all of the hard work you have been doing over the past year." He smiles one of his famous smiles and then says, "Go on, take it out for a spin. Oh, and while you're out, I've got a list of things I'd like you to pick up for the shop. Now that you've got wheels, I've got a few more errands for you to run."
Hmmm, I guess with Arte there's always a catch, but you know what, this time I certainly don't mind...
