I got my ski mask on.

So I'm driving to the store to pick up some lumber to do framing and there's a really annoying old man in a caddy in front of me, driving at about 2/3 of the speed limit. My truck overheats so I can't drive it for long so slow driving really bugs me right now. He crept through a yellow light, and I followed him, with the light turning red essentially the instant I entered the intersection — and, surprise surprise, I look in my rearview mirror as I'm crossing and there's a cop car a hundred and fifty feet behind me…

I finish crossing the intersection and I guess he decides to ticket me and I see him start to accelerate — and the instant he enters the intersection a car crashes into his hood section at full speed and totals both cars (I'm sure the cop was OK, but the other guy may have been hurt). I considered stopping for a moment (having been charged with “failure to remain” as a kid), but because he had not turned on his siren or lights I figured I was within my rights to drive away.

When I come back, he's there with a couple more cars and a tow-truck (that's when I took that picture). I round the corner and I see him gesturing at my truck, which is pretty recognizable because it's an obvious lifted off-road conversion… I doubt I can get in trouble… right?


I did a little more work on my take on Sir John Everett Millais's The Blind Girl. I'd put it aside for a few months but I think I'll try blasting it out over the next week or two.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
