    about the lunatics on the road.  

    A story is told in my family about a "friend" (which is a whole 'nother story) of my great aunt's.  He was driving down the road with a lit cigar in his mouth. (You see it coming, don't ya?)  A couple embers fall and light his shirt on fire.  He then begins trying to beat out the flames.

    The car, no longer having his full attention, starts veering towards the sidewalk, where a group of elderly gentlemen regularly sit outside to view the world.

    He keeps beating at the flames, and the car keeps coming until three things happen almost at the same time. He finally gets the flames out, looks up in time to slam on the brakes, and barely avoids the poor ole guys on the sidewalk who have leaped up, yelling, "Get outta the way, boys.  Here she comes again."

    They'd recognized the car, if not the driver.
