Jeeze, I went and did it AGAIN: Smoked another rich twit.

So here I am this evening, waiting for the light to change on our little 'Parkway'. I'd been running errands all day, so the XL's all dresssed up, looking a bit of a bagger what with windshield, saddlebags, backrest, rack, etc.
I'm in the right lane and I'm vaguely aware of this shiny black car on my left.
Green light, and the guy nails it. Oh boy, here we go again. I give the XL just enough gas to pull even. I can tell the guy's trying because of the noise his engine is making and the way the nose of his car lifts when he shifts it. So then I'm like, OK, you asked for it... I'm fully on the throttle now--but I'm short shifting around ~4500 rpm, eh? I'm by him midway through 4th gear none the less. And I note that my shiny friend is a new Mercedes roadster. Oh, that just made me start grinning like a Cheshire cat. What do these guys think? That because they spent $80,000 on a car that it's gotta be the fastest thing on wheels? They must be stupid or something. Like me old Gram used to say, "More dollars than sense."
Now I don't want to leave you with the impression that I go out at night hunting for these twits. I don't. It must be something they do that takes me back to the days of my youth. I haven't had this much fun since I had that Little Suzy 350 two stroke giant killer in the 1960s. I'll probably end up getting a ticket for street racing, and that's gonna be a tough one to explain to The Wife.
I've gotta stop this. And I would--if it weren't so much fun!
