I like my car. I like driving during the summer with the top down, feeling the warmth of the sun. I also like the way my car sounds, with the low growl that a nice Mustang should have. That must be why that Honda sounded so whiny. As I drove in to work this morning, I suddenly heard this high pitched noise, like someone had started an electric mower or were firing up the weed wacker and had the throttle wide open. I knew that it couldn't have been anything on my car making that noise. I looked around and saw the offender. It was a yellow Honda Civic that looked to be suped up (possibly for street racing, or at least that is what they wanted you to think). Now these cars can be fast and they are light and can be made to book. However, this car made this loud noise and was basically going nowhere. After about 5 seconds he finally moved up and around a car, but not after making a loud annoying sound. Why would anyone drive a car that sounds like a weed wacker?
The communist concert against America was in town last night making parking a bitch downtown. Ok, that might be harsh but Mellencamp was out trying to overthrow the government. There were some tour buses causing minor headaches. When I got out, I also had some of their propaganda on my windshield. I noticed what it was right away and thankfully there was a garbage can nearby. As I drove by the Riverside Theater, I saw some people with their shirts on handing out their papers. Of course I reacted too late. If I had noticed a bit earlier I would have put the window down and shouted "Four more years!" to them just to get their panties in a bunch. Damn, now that I think about it, I also could have gone around the block and made a second pass at them.
