Senior Creativity 7/08

A  senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.


"Amazing!" he thought as he flew down the Interstate, pushing the pedal to the metal even more.


Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind him, red lights flashing and siren blaring. "I can get away from him - no problem!" thought the elderly gentleman as he floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120 mph.


Suddenly, he thought "What on earth am I doing? I'm too old for this nonsense!", pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the Trooper to catch up with him.


Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the driver's side of the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason why you were driving 120 miles per hour that I've never heard before, this one is on me."


The man, looking very seriously at the Trooper, said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a  State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."


The Trooper reached in and patted him on the shoulder and said "Sir have a nice weekend!
