100K+

It's been a few years since I flipped a car past the 100K mile mark. Took this photo on the way home - and had my wife ask, "why were you playing with your camera phone while driving 70 mph down the interstate?!?"

Girls just don't understand.

I'm still giggling. Busted!

Here's the thing.. what girls don't understand is boys who don't think about that sort of thing getting them caught. ;)

It's not that girls don't understand.. it's just that we don't like hearing about the stop with the policeman that occurs just after this photo. "Gee officer.. I was going how fast?? Really?? I didn't know."

sure - comment on the speed, but nothing on the sheer determination to do whatever it took to get the shot. notice the fuel guage - i was running on fumes for that one moment of glory, for that one snapshot that could only tell the story for a brief mile-long stretch of road. sure, i could've waited for a stoplight and taken a picture of 100005. i could've gotten some gas and taken a snap of 100012. but no, it's a pristine and glorious 100000 - and i'd do it again.

What's that they say? "A picture is worth a thousand words."
