This lady once slammed into the back of my car and totaled it. While we’re waiting for the cops, she keeps chatting at me, trying to make me her friend, but I mostly ignore her. Why? Because first she tried to get me to either not call the cops or lie to them because she was driving her husband’s truck without his permission, and then she actually said to me, “I just got my new glasses prescription today, but I’m not wearing them.”

When I was a teen, my family took a road trip from WI to DC and up to NY. At some point, I woke while my folks were gassing up. I asked where we were. “Delaware.” Me: “What state is that in?”

In my defense, a) I had just woken, and b) have yet to verify the actual existence of “the state of Delaware.”

I used to occasionally travel through Delaware on I-95/I-295 over the Delaware Memorial Bridge. The drive through that bit goes by so quickly, the entire experience is basically:

“Welcome to Delaware!”
“Give us $5!”
“Thank you for visiting Delaware.”

I just miss the days when you could get elected Mayor of Portland by getting on the news and responding to questions about religion by calling yourself a “born again Pagan.”
