First Date: Nissan TITAN Midnight Edition

It was just one night. One magical night. The time: the eve of the eclipse 2017. The place: a hot, humid, sticky field in Brentwood, TN. He was tall, dark & handsome. I was jet legged, sweaty and quite possibly a little buzzed from too much whiskey.  The attraction was instant &  impossible to deny—if it wasn’t for the 30 eyewitnesses we could’ve just driven...
