Yeah, that’s fast enough, man


I overheard part of a conversation the other day that I have to share with you here. It’s one of those things that makes you think, or actually say, I can’t believe I just heard that.

A fellow I know was talking to someone else. They were talking during the past weekend about driving fast cars and their experiences at the wheel of said vehicles.

“I got the car up to 105 miles per hour,” this guy said, “but I figured that was fast enough, since I had my wife and kids in the car with me.”

Huh? What the … ? Fast enough? Do ya think?

Hoo, boy.

I laughed out loud. I looked another individual I know. We made eye contact. She and I were thinking precisely the same thing: Did he just say what I think I heard him say?

I’m trying to imagine what it would be like to drive that fast under any circumstances. I cannot even begin to fathom doing so with my family in the same vehicle.

I’m glad he completed the drive … safely.

But holy crap!
