Default Okay...old ladies that will race you rock!

I had the funniest race/kill today. My husband and I were returning home from church and we pulled up at a red light next to a newish Dodge Intrepid with a 60 or so year old lady and a kid in it. Much to our surprise she is inching up a few inches repeatedly while the light is red. We decided that when it went green we were gonna give her a run for her money. :P

So the light turned green and she takes off like a bat outta Hell! We punched it and passed her no sweat, and then we slowed down since we were in a busy commercial area. As we slow, she'* still coming up hard (you could hear her engine over our own and our stereo) and as she passes...get this...she gives us a thumbs up!

We pulled up at another light next to her and we all roll down our windows and I say "nice" with a thumbs up. She replies with a great sly smile, "Bet you didn't expect an old lady to do that!". Lol...I was laughing my butt off and she said with a grin, "I was raised with 6 brothers...but I'd better be good because I have my grandson in the car."

That one goes down in my book as my favorite kill ever.

I wish I could take credit for it...I wasn't actually driving (but I probably made it sound like I was). Believe it or not I'm actually a really timid driver! I have to get over that.
