I was remembering earlier today, an incident, a sad, pitiful, seriously pathetic incident Joel and I witnessed a couple of months ago.

We were outside a convenience store drinking some Gatorade on a hot ride and taking a break in the shade. A young fellow drives up in the absolutely shittiest old (late 1980s) Camaro I have ever in my life seen. It was hit on every corner and side, and the whole thing seemed to be decomposing. It was BARELY limping along.

(like this, only 100x shittier)

A rod was knocking. Hell, probably all of them were. It would barely idle. The steering belt was squealing. This car was the rolling definition of fucked up.

So, this poor schmuck cruises his busted car up to the air compressor, drops in his quarters, and airs up the tires. Then he drives it over to the gas pumps, LEAVES IT RUNNING (!!!!!) and gasses it up.

THEN, he sees fit to rev it up a couple of times.

Two good snorts and a BAM. Shit goes flying all out from under the car. Fucker shot a rod and puked out a mess of oil and shattered car guts all over the parking lot.

Poor sap had just probably sunk a good $20-30 bucks in fuel and tire pressure in that old shitheap, and blew the old wreck to bits.

I felt kind of bad for the guy, because there had to be some reason he was actually fuelling up such a shitty wreck of a car, but on the other hand, I thought, “you are one dumbassed motherfucker. You KNEW that car was trashed, you had to hear that rod talkin’, and you saw fit to redline it? You are seriously deficient in the brainmeats.”

    I forgot how much I missed your site and humor until I didn’t have internet for almost a year.

    I had wondered where you had gone! I had checked in on your website a few times and figured you’d gotten too busy, or got sick of maintaining a blog.

    I’m glad to see you back! I will enjoy getting caught back up with you.

    No, I just got pregnant then had a high risk pregnancy where I was on bed rest most of the time. And I don’t want to be THAT blogger that turns what they do to Mommyblogland, so I took a break.

    I hope to be posting more really soon, tho.
