It was a poor little green Honda Civic. The airfoil on the back was nearly as big as the car, and it had a noisemaker “muffler” under the rear bumper. All it did was make noise. It could barely get out of it’s own way, but it made a lot of noise.
It was a day for bad cars. We saw one on the way back from lunch today. An Excursion with gull wing doors and those low-profile tires that mean it’s only good for hauling your posse.
The day started poorly, car-wise. There was a probably-drunk or stoned older man driving an older model car in rush hour traffic this morning. Driving it like he was on a NASCAR track, weaving in and out, trying to get that one car length ahead. I was of the impression he wanted to be in my lane … trying to cut me off … but I was too far forward for him to get in. He continued over, at least in my perception, so I honked. Kinda laid on the horn, actually. A bit of a mistake with the top down. The guy continued to jaw me for an mile and a half. Every time he’d get close enough that he thought I could hear him, he was at it again. I never really did understand what he said. I did tell him just to drive his car at one point, and later, I made the observation that it was a little early in the day for him to be driving drunk. I finally managed to lose him in traffic, without driving like a maniac. But I suppose I should be a little more judicious about honking at drunks with the top down. It certainly makes that concealed carry permit a little more attractive. I just hope he’s not part of my daily commute.
I checked today and found out that UNF offers the GRE exam 5 days a week, twice a day, for $140.00. So scheduling the exam won’t be a hindrance. I need to get a study guide and see if I have any hope of re-learning … or learning … enough math to make a decent score to get into the program. Then it’s just a matter of finding the money to pay for the courses. But I really think I want to do this.
Rode the bike 18 miles this morning. Then pretty much overate all day. Oh Well.
