How do you know when you are getting older?
Cleaning out my cellphone camera folder for blog posting fodder, I found this picture which I had snapped on my commute home at the first of only two stoplights between where I work and home at completely opposite sides of town. It always gets me seeing young men driving these trucks all decked out in stickers, shiny balls hanging from the rear bumper to apparently compensate for smaller ones elsewhere, and chromed alloy wheel that were not visible here but which I saw when he turned left without using his blinker. What I see is a truck owned by the bank that probably has yet to hold a load in the bed which couldn't be hauled in a much smaller, less costly version of this truck. No wonder so many people are suffering in this economic down turn. They have the intelligence of somewhere between a rock and a fern and yes I am judging him by his truck and where he decided to display his balls.
