I have been inducted. I am One of the few. The proud. The smart.
I was heading towards the freeway; he had just gotten off. We saw each other from a distance - two cars, identical in colour and model. Our roofs were both up; it looked like rain. As he passed me he flashed me a peace sign. I jumped up and down in my seat and waved excitedly back at him.
A fellow smart car driver on the road. I've heard they are out there but had not seen one. Until today.
A coworker (the one who put me onto the smart car in the first place) had told me that by driving a smart car I was also becoming a member of a growing but still small and close-knit community, and she had informed me there's apparently an unspoken etiquette involved when you see another smart car driver on the road. I think I might have been slightly off-etiquette with my dorky, excited, spastic wave in response to his cool peace sign, but I'm a newbie. I'm sure I'll be forgiven.
Next time, I'll go with the classic "thumbs up". Smoooooth. that's me.
