My Grandmother!… You know I got on the highway there for a minute and I just remembered Grammy is still driving… Grammy’s 85 (I just wanted to brace you). She only drives in Central Maine so if you’re away from that area you’re probably safe. Grammy’s got an old Buick, about a ’47 Buick, big heavy lotsa Detroit steel.
Grammy was out driving the other day and Grammy’s got lotsa blue hair, and she’s got 3 blue-haired buddies that hang around with her. I think it’s a cult. Grammy had that big Buick whistlin’ down the highway the other day and the blue light come on behind the car and Grammy pulled right over to the side of the road. The trooper come up and rapped on the door, and Grammy put the window down and said “What is it officer?”.
He says “Well, madam, I just wanted you to understand that it’s just as dangerous to drive too slow as it is to drive too fast. You gotta pick up the pace.”
She said “Officer, I’m always careful to drive the speed limit no matter where I am, and that’s what I was doing.” He said “No, you weren’t.” She says “Yes, I was.”
He said “Madam, I just clocked you at 22 miles an hour.”, and she said “That’s the speed limit!”, and he says “No, ma’am, that’s the route number.”
He says “That’s not the problem now. I’ve been standing here for 5 minutes talking to you and checking your license and registration, and in all that time not one of your 3 blue-haired buddies has said a word! What’s wrong with them?”
She says “Well, we just got off route 119.”
(I can just see Grammy… holdin’ on… at that speed, mister.)
