A Golden Moment
This isn't a story about smoking anyone at a stoplight (though it happens on occasion), but it's one of those stories that makes me smile whenever it comes to mind.
I was sitting in the 280, top down for a beautiful day, radio playing low and waiting outside a pharmacy for my girlfriend to finish her shopping. Parked right next to the door, I watched as an unhappy house frau came striding past looking like she just traded her broom for a suppository prescription.
A few seconds later, the Mr. came out of the store, slowly but clearly following the boss. As he was passing, he stopped beside the driver door, placed his hand gently on the roll bar behind my seat and said, quietly and almost in wonder, "No back seat."
I looked up at him, smiled and replied, "No back seat driver."
He paused for a second. Then he grunted, somewhat dejectedly, "Uh huh," and scurried on to his own existence.
If you've never had that kind of "Damn, I'm lucky" reminder, I hope its in your near future. That IS the SLK experience. Enjoy.
