I swear my husband gets his jollies by trying to embarrass the crap out of me.  He's always enjoyed putting the car windows down and driving around our neighborhood with the radio blaring full blast.  And believe me, I've seen many an eye roll from our fellow neighbors whenever we go thumping by.  It makes me wanna slump down in the seat and pretend like I'm not really there, even though most of them recognize both our car AND my husband's antics by now.  His latest torture technique, however, involved a series of ridiculously loud horn honks.

So we were coming back from a day at the beach when some friends of ours pulled up next to us at a stoplight.  My husband made eye contact with my friend's husband, and from the sly grins on their faces, I knew that it was on like Donkey Kong.  My prankster of a spouse evidently took that as his own personal challenge to see who could outdo the other in obnoxious behavior.

And that's when the chorus of honking began.  It started out as just a succession of short toots at first, but it quickly transformed into one long, continuous H-O-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-N-K.  I again tried to hide on the floor of the car as I willed the stupid light to please turn to green, but it seemed to stay red FOREVER.  Neither husband was willing to back down either.  The noise just keep going and going and going.

When we finally turned toward our house, a woman who was outside watering her flowers yelled, "You Idiots!!!" as we drove by.  She was clearly annoyed by the whole rowdy scene we had just created.  And I'm pretty sure she would've flipped us the bird if we hadn't had our kids in the back seat.  My husband just laughed his creepy Dr. Evil laugh, while I realized that the woman had totally taken the words right out of my mouth....
