Getting back into the real world
I am preparing myself to get back to work with the physical therapy and doing some driving. Wouldn't you know that as soon as I get behing the wheel, I almost get creamed by some idiot in a pickup who was changing lanes and not paying attention. Guy in the mohawk with a black pickup on Jamboree around 2:30pm? You are an asshole. An asshole who is also a barrel racer, listens to My Chemical Romance and promises that "The beatings will continue until morale improves" according to his bumper stickers.
Interesting facts from that wikipedia entry on barrel racers:
It is mostly a "cowgirl" sport and "A cowboy hat is part of the dress code for the event; if the riders hat falls off during a race, a rider will be fined $10-$25. This fine is unique to barrel-racing, though it is falling out of favor and some events even ask that a cowboy hat not be worn." Oh, the controversy!
And, apparently, it isn't horse abuse.
Now, I enjoy watching cars go around in circles, so I am not going to ridicule anyone's sport of choice. But, c'mon, guy with mohawk, girl sport, emo makeup band fan who almost ran me over?
It would have almost been worth it to not have braked and taken you out.
Can you tell I am off the valium?
(don't worry, I will go back to posting pics from the feed, just needed to vent.)
