5 Things I Have To Have Now



I'm a pretty boring guy" is how David T. Terry, 37, describes himself. Well, he is married (to wife Alisia) with two kids, a boy and a girl. Normal, but not boring. He's also got a stillnew job leading Maryland's largest African-American historical museum. Challenging, but not boring. And if Terry could have any car he wanted, he would drive an atomic orange sports car that goes really fast. Definitely not boring.

1 Disney cruise for my family "My job keeps me here a lot of the time. My kids are generally asleep when I get home. I see them in the morning and I talk to them a few times in the evening."

2 The House That Trane Built, a book by Ashley Kahn "It's about Impulse Records. He [John Coltrane] is my all-time favorite artist."

3 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 "If I can bring it home without having to explain it. In atomic orange ... a color Chevy used to use on the Corvette back in the '70s and '80s. It has 505 horsepower and goes really fast. Best thing for your money, if you have $75,000."

4 A week at the Bondurant School of High-Performance Driving in Phoenix, Ariz. "You can learn to drive any type of high-performance vehicle. Spend a week out there and have the time of your life. ... My son is 5 and very much into cars and trucks. On the weekend, we watch a series on auto shows."

5 Orlando solo trip "It's a metaphor for my life, in a way. After everybody and everything has been taken care of, I take my book and find a quiet place in the house. The only variation here is I'm in a nice, warm climate, with a nice cup of coffee beside me."
