I remember when...


...car flirting was still innocent. You know, you catch a cute stranger's eye. You pass him. He speeds up and smiles at you. You flutter your eyelids and grin. He passes you. This process usually continues until one party veers off the common road.

That is how car flirting should go. Last weekend I had an experience with an awful new form of car flirting. Here's how it went:

Pretty Roomy and I were driving home after the movie we went to with Mr. Maybe (I can't call him Mr. Right. I'm not sure yet and I don't know him well enough). Anyway, we were driving home on the highway. I turned to see an SUV with a younger guy driving it. He noticed me, but I didn't pay any attention. I was deep into a convo with PR. I turned again to see Young Guy staring at me like a dork. I did the giant cheesy smile and childish wave. Then I ignored him again. I continued talking to PR... probably about Mr. M. Then I turned to see YG's friend, Stupid Guy, who I hadn't even noticed, hold up a hastily made paper sign reading "SHOW BOOBS."
Whatever happened to innocent car flirting? When did we ever go straight from cheesy grin to frontal nudity? What is this world coming to?

You are SO right! Whatever did happen to innocent car flirting? I think it gave birth to deadly road rage - so I certainly hope you complied with their request just on account of saving your life and all. And why stop at boobs? Why not moon them, crotch them, have their babies, and send them merrily on their way. Eeeew.

Stupid idiots.

I'm reading this at work and laughing inappropriately. People must think I'm crazy. And if anybody asks, "Yes, I am working. I was just struck by the hilarity of the attendance codes. Ok?"

That is too funny...not your post but the comment. I remember a few years back there was a couple of DJ's in the Boston Area that started WOW (Wipem Out Wednesdays) That took car flirting to a whole new level. Kind of like these guys.

OMG, this is sick. I will be telling my age... but while a teen driving no less with my parents, sitting alone in the back seat... a car passed with a cute guy sitting in the back of his parents car looking at bored as me. We gave each other the peace sign and smiled. That is my goofy memory.
