The Beamer was on the fritz today, so perhaps part of this decision was based on the fact that if I crashed, I would have crashed a loaner Buick Lucerne as opposed to his beloved 5 series. Nevertheless, we made it from OG to the Stamford Mall, where I enjoyed my second viewing of Borat and Le Doug experienced his first.
On the way home I had to navigate, in the dark no less, a treacherous strip in Stamford where people quite literally walk in front of moving cars. I don't know why anyone would knowingly walk in the middle of the Post Road, but every time I have ever cruised through this section I have had to dart pedestrians who seemed to be oblivious to the existance of the sidewalk. There was also one 12-year-old boy, on a bike and dressed in black, who thought it was logical to pedal against oncoming traffic.
Le Doug, always a man of patience, tried to school me in always being a smooth driver and used some flight instructor examples about anticipating everything, including 12 year old boys on bikes dressed in back who exercise poor judgement. In all, we got home in one piece, enlightened by yet another screening of Borat.
