Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.

So there I was driving home from work. I merged into the turning lane so I could turn left. When all of a sudden I noticed a man in a suit hanging out the window of a black suburban with a U.S. Government license plate. He was yelling at me and the car beside me to stop. So I stopped. (you can see his hand. I was too scared to take a picture while he was hanging out the window in case he would have to confiscate my camera). As you can see by the picture there is space for about 4 cars to fit between me and the car in front of me. He continued to hang out the window. I was waiting to see what would happen when the light turned green. What was going down? I had my camera ready just in case....
Then the light turned green. So I waited... And... the suburban drove straight through the intersection. What? I was so confused. And annoyed. Who was the important person in the fancy car in front of the suburban that couldn't have anyone be next to them?
Weird. VERY weird.

HA!!! I had a VERY similar experience a few weeks ago but forgot to blog about it! I was driving back to work from lunch and a motor cade turned onto the street I was on while I was at a red light. So I wonder who it is and when the light turns green I caught up to them at the next red light. I pulled up next to them (maybe that was my mistake). I stopped right by the suburban with flashing lights. I looked to my left and staring me straight in the face is some ort of secret service dude who did NOT look happy. I slowly faced forward and continued sipping my shake so I wouldn't upset him with any sudden movements. I took another glace before the light turned green and he was still glaring at me. It was pretty funny... after the fact. I'm just glad he didn't have a machine gun in my face. I saw one of those hanging out of a suburban in NYC... now THAT would be scary!
