Funny Story

After picking up Oldest Princess today, we were on our way home when this "kid" (under 20) pulled up next to us at a stop light in a lowered Honda CRX. He started lurching forward like he was trying to get me to race. Um, first off, I was turning and he was going straight. Secondly, my Cherokee could drive over the top of him. Thirdly, he didn't know who he was messing with. ;) He kept looking over and I just kind of rolled my eyes at him. Little does he know that I used to drag race. Don't worry, not on the street, on the race track. LOL When I was 16, I took Top Eliminator for the whole race. I got a trophy that was probably 3 feet tall. LOL I still have it around here somewhere, probably somewhere in the pit we lovingly refer to as a garage. LOL So anyway, moral of the story is, don't challenge someone to race when you don't know their background. ;)

How did I not know about your drag racing? My dad was semi famous in No. California for being a racer. I dabbled in it a bit, but never competed. I have to admit I street raced though and I can still beat most people at the lights even at my ancient age.
