Even the Elderly ...

like to rock the boat sometimes. Teenage rebellion doesn't always age gracefully. For example, did you know that ...

If you're in older, apparently it's okay to jog slowly across a busy road ... in the dark ... in all black clothing ... against the light -- as long as you have made yourself a boyscout style sash of reflective tape. Oncoming traffic is bound to be so impressed that they'll halt in awe of your one diagonal, reflective stripe. Ooh! Shiny ...

Irony is found in the very elderly man driving down the freeway -- at a whopping speed of 50 miles per hour in a 65 miles per hour zone -- blocking all followers from passing or merging as needed. While this may not seem ironic, add in the final detail; his car is sporting a license plate that states "DEVLSH". Aw, the triple irony ... either his idea of living on the edge is deeply different from that of his teenage self or living on the edge is the death wish of driving so slowly that he's likely to be run down as he creeps along or perhaps, he just likes to stir the pot by driving people around him to anxiety and anger ...
