Real people are so much stranger than fictional ones
Yesterday, on the main road that winds through my subdivision, I got stuck behind a car that was going five miles an hour slower than the already-modest speed limit. It was a big car: a Lincoln. I could see a head of snow-white hair above the drivers-side headrest.
Now, this is Florida, so it's practically an everyday occurrence to be stuck behind a senior citizen driving a big fuddy-duddy sedan slower than the speed limit. But it's not every day that you get stuck behind a senior citizen driving slower than the speed limit in a big fuddy-duddy sedan that has a bumper sticker that reads: Born Again Pagan.
Nope, not every day.
