The next time a gift horse trots my way, I’ll be giving it a full dental examination.
When TG UK HQ offered up the chance to drive a new Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder in LA I was too busy bouncing gaily and clapping my hands like a seal to ask any questions. I even said I’d sleep in the car, if necessary. Obviously, I was picturing myself as a model of contentment, cruising down the Sunset Strip with what looked like a shower of confetti raining into the cabin, but would turn out to be the flung phone numbers of Lohans and Kardashians.
