I’m driving to someplace today and I have the windows down and the music playing and my son tells me that I shouldn’t have my arm out the window because someone might hit it and break my arm off. I asked him where he got such a notion and he responded, “Mom said it.”
Now I realize there are a lot of rules that we have when riding or driving a vehicle. In order to be safe, always ride with a helmet. Always buckle up. Always make sure you go the speed limit (which I rarely do). Always keep a safe distance between my car and the person in front of me. But no arms out the window???
SCREW THAT RULE! I’ve hung my arm out the window since I was able to drive and I have never once, in all those years, had it ripped from my body and flung into the opposite lane.
So when Christopher asked, “Why do you do that Daddy?”
I responded. “Because it’s cool.”
James Dean ain’t got nothing on me, man. I’m one bad ass mo-fo. So get outta my way when I got that arm out, swingin’ in the breeze. ‘Cause I’m comin’ through and you can’t stop me!
Well…no one can stop me except my wife, I guess. Fun hater wife…
