Will I ever grow up?

Driving home from a regrettably late trip to the local 24-hour "everything" store, I was again reminded of just how juvenile I can get sometimes. My Dodge Ram has a muffler problem... probably several of them, since it appears to be flaking away nicely under there. Anyway, it gives my poor, little 4.6 liter (or litre as some would say) V-8 a bit of an aggressive tone.

So, I leave the store, pull out onto the 4-lane divided highway to go home, accelerate and, while listening to something appropriately retro on the oldies radio station, decide to PUNCH IT. Of course, like any other internal combustion engine with a bad exhaust system, it roared. For a brief, shining moment, I felt like I was 19 again and driving my pretty silver GTO. Of course, the moment passed very quickly when I wheeled around a corner and all the groceries slid to one side of the back seat.

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted? I still wonder when the hell I'm gonna outgrow that impulse, though. Or, at the very least, learn to start resisting it! Maybe then I won't have things leaping out of the truck when I get home and open the back doors!!!
