following my brethern home

this evening as i was making my journey home from work, i was passed by a black toyota tundra. this is not unusual. i get passed a lot, because though most people i know think i’m the speediest demon there is, it’s not quite true.

but today, this was not your ordinary passing of one truck by another. no. the truck that passed me was directly behind and then decided he had to get in front of me. i didn’t much care because i’m fucking tired today and getting up the road rage attitude was just going to take entirely more energy than i was willing to give. so i shrugged to myself and watched as the jumped back into my lane right in front of me.

that’s when i spotted it.

right there on the truck’s bumper, an 89.3 The Current bumper sticker. i was instantly in love. this was the very first vehicle that i had seen on the road with this bumper sticker. i mean, besides ruby. but then i can’t really see her bumper when i’m driving.

as soon as i saw it, i know that mr. toyota tundra was trying to show off. i made it my mission to find out if the driver was a full-on hottie, because, well, we were in my neck of the twin cities woods and there aren’t so many full-on hotties, much less full-on hotties with excellent taste in radio. most of the people in these here parts are of the Nascar/Jeff Foxworthy/bad music i cannot even name ilk.

but, try as i might, the fates were not with me today. oh not, today was not my day to meet the spy the full-on hottie through the tinted window of his tundra and see if perhaps we couldn’t make a love connection. nope, a damn minivan filled with soccer mom and her brood got in my way and i never got to catch up. i could have taken the right on 42 when he did, and kept following him. but to go home, i take the left. and we all know that i have very strick stalking rules*.

but tomorrow is another day and now i am on the lookout.

    * did you notice that in the comments on that link i have a marriage proposal? i didn’t notice it until right now.

    I was giggling to myself because I always see the same people – total strangers, mind you – on my daily commute. I know them by their license plates. I never considered it stalking before. Just when that seemed funny enough to end on, I saw that crazy marriage proposal. Poor guy is probably still waiting for your picture! Send it … don’t wait for the dye job to fade!

    he was only 19! i can’t marry a nineteen-year-old.

    Oh come on. The young are malleable. You could have your way with him. Imagine the possibilities …

    Men never grow up anyway, what difference does it make? (What is that? Men are like Government Bonds — they never mature).
    Look on the bright side, you can still get him into movies for half price!

    yeah, but he can’t even buy beer!

    Exactly … so you always have a designated driver. Come on, Jodi. Is the glass half empty or half full? You’re missing an excellent opportunity here!
