tonight when i was driving home

there was this car in front of me going about 15 mph in a 25 zone. She pulled out in front of me right when I was turning out of the library parking lot. Then she braked her way down the four block street until the intersection where I hoped to part ways. Nope. Turned down the same street I needed to go. I started to lose patience. It called for an unprecedented tail-gate. So I began to approach her gigantic bumper. Slowly her license plate border came into view:

"I may be slow...but I'm ahead of you"

oooooo...that made me so mad.

Never fails, does it? Not only a total jerk behind the wheel, but proud!

That makes me happy. It's like she deliberately pulled out in front of you and drove slowly just so you could catch a glimpse of her license plate. Did you laugh?

I kinda want to make a bunch of t-shirts now that say heinous things using the same sentence structure. "I may be _____, but I'm _______ you.

"I may be ugly but I'm better looking than you." "I may be a brat, but I get my way more than you." "I may be a loser, but I have more free time than you." I "I may wet myself in public, but I'm not as stinky as you." "I may be a nudist, but I get more fresh air than you."

I'm sitting here cracking myself up with my own little jokes and imagining myself walking around town with said t-shirts. I better stop. I may be funny, but I'm not as funny as you.

Mary you have begun something great here. There are endless possibilities with a template like that. Maybe we could start filling the blanks on T-Shirts and sell them to "Hot Topic".

What do you say?

Cate,
It looks like we're in business. Jo would BUY a shirt like that. And it's all thanks to Louise Holt with a capital B. Yes!
