man stg just isn't what it's cracked up to be. apparently there was a race to get pulled over first yesterday and this mom thought if she won shed get on the PTA. Im heading west on Canyon drive in boulder, its a windy road along a river that heads to Nederland. fun but too crowded for rallying. Anyway, its about 4 blocks from downtown before its in the canyon, and in the middle of that stretch of four blocks is the courthouse. I never speed here. so im going 38 in the left lane, right before the courthouse a lady in her early 40s in a blue 05 2.4rs goes past me, head on her hand in a daze kind of. i get annoyed, because i know when i hit the curves ill be going 10 over and shell be breaking in the middle of corners at 10 under. I hate being behind people on mtn roads. So i speed up a little, and so does she. i look down and im going 45 in a 35, ticket territory for sure. i think "damn this is stupid to get in front of her, ill pass her later." we pass the last intersection, and as i think "ill drop it 3rd and pass her its safe now". im reaching for the shifter and my gf says "hey isnt that a cop?" up ahead in the shade was a black boulder PD. i hit the brakes to under 40, checking my escort8500. nothing. she keeps speeding, i smile. it was one of those cartman moments where he yells "oh yeahh! it's onnnnnnn!" when someone's fighting. i was so excited, esp. after reading the stories of people getting ricers pulled over. she passes the cop without even letting off, totally doesnt see him, even though hes 5 ft from the road. he pulls in behind, flips on the cherries. 2.5s won the race, but a 42yr old mom had a middlife crisis, bought a packet of "ricer 5000" watched 2f2f and walked an sti. lol. i think itd be great if the cop said "i pulled you over because of your wing."
cliff notes: soccer mom in a 2.5rs passed me at 40, i acceled to get ahead in the canyon. she sped to 50, passed a cop. he pulled over an older lady and let the young kid in the sti go by. justice.
