I'll say, I've had the stuff, and it's pretty good. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it's one of my favorite bottled beverages around.
Here's the problem though, my mom's been having trouble finding it in stores. Today we didn't have anything to do, so I pulled her into my room and together we found the sobe website and its fabulous drink locator tool. I pieced together a hitlist so we could pinpoint that beverage and stock up on it.
As we ride, I hear the wail of sirens passing us in the opposite direction. I didn't pay it any mind and just kept on driving, I mean, I hear sirens all the time as they pass. Nay did I notice, the sound of the sirens never left the back of my head; in fact they got notably louder.
I check my rearview and notice the awesome shape of a 2011 Dodge Charger, and the not-so-awesome blue and red flashing lights on top.
Is he after me because I said I made a hitlist?
I scope out the area in front of me, assuming that I'll have to pull over. Keep in mind, the speed zone I'm in allows for me to go from 50-60 MPH, and I was going about 58; but this guy's on my but, so I can't really lay on the brakes or anything.
I'm also watching the trooper's actions, and I cut my mom off, who apparently hasn't noticed yet and is still jabbering about something.
"Mom, have you noticed what's behind us?"
"Look behind us."
Breaking off as she turned around, she looked forward again and turned white.
I'm still reducing speed and preparing to pull over, but decide I should go through the light and pull over at the gas station because I'm entering a very busy intersection, more to the point the road I'm on doesn't have a shoulder, but rather a soggy mush of a ditch.. Then I notice something truly interesting.
The cop's giving me the most peculiar face, holding his hand palm up, like 'What is this idiot doing?' and riding my tail rather closely.
Then I get it.
He's not after me, he wants to get by.
But I'm confused, because he could have, I dunno... gone around? I mean, he scared my mom half-to-death and made me think I had to pull over for something! We're on a road which has two-lanes going in the same direction, why did he have to practice running me off the road just to get on by?
So anyway, I change lanes and he zips off like he's Rainbow Dash or something; leaving my mom in the other seat with a load of stress to deal with.
I'm soothe-talking her on in to the Food Lion parking lot and defending my own actions, as I've come to do with every trip I drive with her, and that topic's finally dropped. Even so, my brow's still furrowed just thinking about it. I could've gone without that today.
When we make it in, of course we find her drink, and it's on sale, and we buy it.
Woo, happy day.
Suddenly filled with stress.
Ps: Had an internet company worker drop by the house today and fix up some of our internet issues. Hopefully. I stood by to watch what he was doing, and, I'm pretty sure I already have all the know-how I need to do everything he did for us today; aside from the bag full of tools, of course. I'm jelly.
