if the women don't find you hansome, they should at least find you handy


i was looking in the rear view mirror and noticed an angry man.  he was sitting in his car, in the driver's seat, driving behind me.  i looked down at my speedometer and noted the 20 km/h more than the posted limit i was driving and looked back into the mirror.  the fury this man was displaying was one that i'm sure is similar to the fury i myself display when caught in traffic behind some old lady that thinks the speed limits were lowered to half.
 
as an opportunity occurred, i pulled into the right hand lane to let this angry man pass by.  i knew that there would be a police radar trap not too far off in the distance, so i thought it would be nice for him to be able to figure that out on his own, rather than have me get in the way of his discovery.
 
while he was passing by, i noticed something.  i'm pretty certain that the duct tape content of his car was pushing 50%-60%.  both bumpers, the passenger side windows (front and back), various pieces of the door - all held together by duct tape.  it was like something off of a Red Green episode.  must have been in a hurry to get home before the car fell apart.

    I'm pretty sure my older sister wants to marry Red Green. Since she's in upstate NY she gets the Canadian TV shows sometimes, and now that she's got a new(ish) baby she occasionally has to wake up at crazy morning hours to feed him, and sometimes catches old Red Green shows, then later tells me all about them. There's an anecdote for you.
