Recently I’ve had various concerned friends inform me the mesquite-smoked, charcoal-fueled grilled dinners I’ve been cooking are BAD for me. On the other hand, I’m willing to bet the grill of an accelerating SUV driven by a distracted driver looking the opposite way as he blew through a stop sign while making a right directly into the crosswalk I was midway across, causing me to dive for the curb like a terrified squirrel, has more potential to be terminal than barbequed ribs. And if, in the end, I had found myself beneath the wheels of that high-velocity land-barge, at least I’d go knowing I’d enjoyed my last supper.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You can spend your life eating sticks and berries only to have a bus jump the curb and take you out. Careless drivers scare me way more than cheeseburgers. So enjoy life in moderation. You never know when your number will be up. And I can tell you one thing… tonight’s barbeque is going to taste extra good!
On that note, I bring you some large, high-velocity vehicles being driven in a more attentive manner. This amuses me every time I watch, but you should know I have a black sense of humor.
