I just passed a Clown in a Volvo
So the other day we were on the way back from the North Carolina Coast from my parents house. On the return trip we were driving west on I-40. We approached a early model Volvo driving a little erratic. Of course, every time I see an older Volvo I think Hippie-granola. They always seem to be the kind of people who are always talking about "going green." Only in this case they really were green, the ugliest color of puke green you can imagine: Yuck! As I got closer I noticed that they had a University of Virginia sticker in the back window. My brother in law and sister in law are graduates of the University of Virginia. As I got closer they continued to weave back and forth. "It figures" I thought, thinking about that rear window sticker. Finally I accelerated to pass, making sure to look over at the driver and give him or her my "You shouldn't be allowed to drive" stare. This is where things got interesting. When I looked over I realized he was wearing Mime makeup. Yeah, that's right, Mime makeup, or maybe it was clown makeup. Who knows which it was. All I could think to myself was "I just passed a mime in a volvo down I-40."
