Driving home with Eric

Driving home with my husband can be...an adventure. We were heading home tonight after buying our Wii (sidenote: EEEEE!) and ended up behind a red Mistubishi Eclipse. The car was pretty, and shiny, and looked to be fairly new and in reasonably good shape. The driver, however, felt that the rain meant he needed to drive extremely slowly along the main roads. This drove Eric nuts, leading to such remarks as:

"Yes, going faster means that more water hits your windshield. There are little rubber things to fix that problem! They go back and forth!"

"The gas pedal does not equal INSTANT DEATH!"

"You drive like my grandmother - and she's been dead for 10 years!"

"So help me, if you blog about this on LJ..." (Hee.)

And, with a triumphant "HA! Now someone else has to follow you, sucker!", we passed him and made it home safely. :)
