While driving my daughter to acting class this afternoon, I heard a sound through my open sunroof. I quieted, looked in the rearview mirror, and realized it was music from the car behind me.
They could have been a movie cast--three teenage boys blasting music in a yellow Jeep with the top off. With their tousled hair, sunglasses, and button-down shirts, all they needed was a cigarette and a bad attitude to be James Spader circa Pretty in Pink. True to casting, they tailgated for as long as they followed me. When I turned right, they blew past my left side into the oncoming lane before I had time to start the turn.
