(Necessary prep info, Stella is my '97 Mazda Miata, my BABY!)
Mother Liberty asked Stella, "Little Miata, how much do you love your country?"
"THIS MUCH," Stella answered.
That's right, folks, how many people can say their car bled for America?
The funny thing is, as I was pulling out of my driveway, I had a thought flash throug my head. It said: "Something interesting is going to happen at the polls. I feel it." Somehow I knew it would be blogworthy. I didn't know it would be another-dent-in-my-car-worthy.
This was not a case of some idiot driver talking on a cell phone. Seriously the parking lot at the polls was a CLUSTERFUCK! People were parking across the street, all over the grass and, of course, right in the middle of the lanes people needed to get in and out. Gotta love those Baton Rouge drivers.
I'd spent a good 5 minutes just trying to maneuver my way out of this maze of clusterfucky cars and was almost out - an egg-shell blue minivan was in front of me trying to turn right back out onto the road. I was stuck behind it when I noticed the large black SUV to my right's backing lights come on.
"Oh shit," I thought and laid on the horn. He kept coming until the sound of the satisfying crunch blended in a beautiful cacophony with my blaring horn.
We got out and I suggested we drive to the parking lot across the street - as we were holding up the clusterfucky traffic. He was a very nice old man and I was very courteous - it was partly my fault I suppose when you consider that my car sat completely under his back window - he couldn't have seen me. One of the downfalls of having a Miata. I doubt the horn, in all of the other traffic-messes going on, really drew any attention either.
All I've got to say is this:
KERRY BETTER FUCKING WIN!!
Please - go vote (for Kerry) - so Stella will not have bled in vain!
