the tatoo too

i was driving home from wisconsin recently and illinois is all about these toll booths on the interstate i take. i get to one and i realize that i don't have enough coin to pay the man. so i say "can i give you a card?" and he looks at me with the most offensive grimace and says: "you... make... me... sick" then just turned around. so, aaalright, guess that means no. fair enough. so now i have to mail the state of illinois 80 cents.

on a lighter note, one of my favorite lyrics ever is in tom petty's "into the great wide open"...

eddie waited 'til he finished high school.
he went to hollywood, got a tatoo.
he met a girl out there with the tatoo too.
the future was wide open.

the tatoo too? are you shitting me? genius.

Sup bruva? I found your blog. n+1 on your readership. I had to laugh and write you after the toll booth story. I once drove my motorcycle through an automated one so that I could pull over and get my money out. I walked back, paid, and left. A week later I get a letter from NJDOT fining me 25 bucks. They had a picture of me riding my lil Nighthawk away. I felt like a criminal. I wrote them back and explained what I did and then asked for a refund for my stamp costs. bitches. i'm going to give you a call as soon as my phone is charged.
