Still a kid at 51, I guess

Went out to pick up a tree, stopped at Advanced to pick up a spark plug for the Pontiac (don't ask why one, it's still annoying me), and on the way home I go. Someone in a late model tricked out bow-tie with enough lights to light all the trees in the lot where I got mine started messing with me on the street. Being the truck is a 73 and it's in great shape, I'm used to people trying to get closer looks, but be respectful. My wife also noticed the Chevy was getting a little obnoxious and also commented on it.

We finally come to a stop light and now he's right on my butt like ugly on an ape. Light goes green and I dropped the clutch, Chevy lights got smaller and smaller, and I think I heard my wife's head hit the back glass for first through fourth. She avoided hitting it for fifth.

I'm pretty sure I heard the truck snickering as we pulled into the drive.

There's a little lesson here, to. Just because the truck and driver got some grey, don't mean they're not going to play.

Oh, and my wife's still annoyed.

It's hard to stop , even when you get older . Not the first time I've had the wife say to me " if you dont stop racing that guy I'm opening this door and getting out " Thats on a motorway at stupid speeds !!!!!! She then calls ME crazy !!

Yeah, my wife's still giving me grief tonight, says her neck's stiff. Made me promise to take it easy going over to some friends house tonight. With the rain we had, I didn't have much choice. Wranglers seem to grab dry pavement all right, do pretty goos in wet red clay, but they don't like wet roads.
