It's a bird! It's a plane! Oh crap, it's a bird.

I was a bit distracted today as I made my way to the grocery store.  I made a right turn out of my neighborhood and merged into two lanes of traffic.  I had to quickly make my way to the far left turning lane, so that I could make a left turn into the shopping plaza.

I noticed a car stopped beside me with an little old woman at the wheel.  Her even OLDER husband, who was ninety if he was a DAY, was leaning forward and flipping me the bird.

He shook his hand at me and flipped me the bird for at LEAST five minutes as we stopped at the light.; flipping, flipping, flipping.  I’m pretty sure he was shouting some pretty interesting things to me as well, but fortunately all of our windows were closed.

I turned into the grocery store parking lot and laughed.

I wasn’t offended in any way that he was flipping me the bird.

Frankly, I was impressed that he could even get it up
(And that he could keep it up for so LONG was impressive...) 

Good for him.

If you were in Florida, that may have been my father or my father in law. If the woman was also flipping you off, it was definitely my in laws.
