I’mma get one of them

“Can I just say, I turned around expecting to find an unattractive young man with his music really loud like yours, well because I was just in New York last week and that’s what they all do. But instead I found a young beautiful lady, wow; good on you make sure you keep pumping it up. We are just heading out to the city; it’s her birthday today. Enjoy your night.”

She then drove off.
What am I talking about you ask?
This is how it went..

It was 5 pm on a Friday afternoon, cruising in peak hour traffic, jamming to Usher, “Players when you see me, act like you know me, I keep a dollar worth of dimes, you know pimpin’ aint easy”. In most occasions, whilst driving, noise outside the car is an indication that the music is not loud enough, so I took care of it, as I generally do.

When I stopped at the 300th red light of the day, I noticed a black S class Saloon Mercedes on my right, a well put middle-aged lady driving with her friend, roughly 50+ years of age, two of which began to stare in my direction. I glimpsed over and saw the driver speaking, assuming she was having a conversation with the passenger, I minded my business, plus I wouldn’t hear an explosion if it happened in front of me.

I looked over to analyse how the beige leather interior marries with the black exterior, yes perfect, then noticed that she began shouting at me – ME, WHAT?
I turned the music down ready to defend myself because I knew I was going to get lectured by a woman who has a problem with my loud tunes – how dare she. Instead, she graced me with compliments and embraced my youth.

I explained that I’m definitely not the favourite neighbour in the hood; so she laughed and she said, “Oh don’t worry about them, they don’t know how to have fun”.

The light turned green, I made a wrong assumption, and that was that.

Koenigsegg CCX

By no means am I a car enthusiast nor do I know much about their functionality and I do tend to sway more on the superficial side on this subject, therefore the Koenigsegg CCX is one to be spoken about.  By chance I came across an article this morning that has ranked the car in the top fastest cars in the world so my industry knowledge is surprisingly okay.

Externally the design screams out trouble so I had a thought, what would I do if I could get my hands on one for just an hour (not to be greedy).

Firstly, I would have to choose a classic model to keep it simple, black exterior and beige leather interior. As a rite of passage I’d have to wear tight black leather pants and tie my hair up to give it the respect it deserves, thirdly I would rev up the engine just for a laugh, and finally speed off so fast on a limitless highway until my 7.00am alarm clock begins to ring and it’s now time for work.

Here’s a positive, at least I didn’t get caught !
