Overheard in the Fabmobile...

On the way to breakfast on Sunday, approaching the curved access ramp for the highway, which is posted at 20 MPH:

Me: How fast do you think I can take this turn?
Mrs. Fab: I don't know.
Me: No come on, guess.
Mrs. Fab: 35.

We go into the turn

Me: Still at 40...37....37...38... Ha! Made it higher than 35!
Mrs. Fab: I'm so proud of you.
Me: I think that was sarcasm.
Mrs. Fab: Oh no, you're a real man.

Whereupon she collapses in a fit of uncontrollable laughter.

Heavy sigh.

You ARE! I don't think that she was being sarcastic at all. Any man who can take a turn that is posted at 20mph faster than 35mph is the manliest of men.;)

Now YOU are being sarcastic. Stop ganging up on me!

I'm sure Mrs. Fab would never be sarcastic.

Heh. I just don't get it. How does speed equate to manliness again? Is it the danger? The excitement? The seatbelt locking into place and reminding you how much you need to pee?

Holy crap! Is it Sunday night?

Doesn't Mrs. Fab know that now you have to beat this score every time until she either screams or smacks you and tells you to stop it?

Cause that is how my husband is.

I once knew a guy who believed that those signs posted half of what you could do. So if the curve said 35 mph, he thought it really meant 70 mph was okay.

I kid you not. Not a really smart guy.

Blogarita--Oh no, certainly not...

Erin--Umm...All of the above? :)

Schad--I knew you would understand, my brother!

Lynda--Actually, it was LAST Sunday. Sorry for the confusion!

Dutchy--Oh, you would be surprised how much mocking i have to endure!

Lorraine--Yep, she was practically rolling around on the floor of the car!

Pixie--At least I'm not THAT bad...

You're gonna hate me for telling this story my dad often told in his sermons: A king needed to hire a driver for his daughters and took applicants out on a hilly, curvy road for demonstration of their skills. One guy showed just how close he could get to the edge of the precipice without falling off, only to be outdone by the next guy who actually made it closer, in an attempt to show how "safe" they were. The third guy stayed as far from the edge of the road as possible, as close to the center line as he could. Guess whom the king chose :)

Ok, Happy Father's Day!

I say it's time to paint some snazzy red flames on the sides of the Fabmobile...and hope this story doesn't break to Evil Knievel. He would be crushed!

He he. My husband nearly slid us into a barrier once because he took a corner too fast. It was a very sharp turn on a steep hill. After nearly crushing me he exclaimed, "Wow, that corner is just as sharp going up as it is down." DUH!

Spidey--I think Evel is pretty much out of it at this point, so I could probably get away with it...

CS--Oh yes, PLENTY of insurance LOL

Cherish--You are so right, my friend!
