Stay on Target

Now that Pookieday is over, the holiday season can officially begin. So the holiday lights are up on the house, with a bare minimum of cursing.

Earlier today, we were driving around, and the slow car ahead of me changed lanes virtually in synchrony with me (thus blocking me from my intended pass). As is my wont in such situations, I intoned, "The force is strong with this one."

Dr. Pookie briefly worried about the fact that when driving, my go to role-model was Vader. Then she reconsidered, imagining that if I modelled myself on Luke, I'd turn off the GPS and drive with my eyes closed.
