When Worlds Collide

So I'm coming up on a stoplight and there's a white Odyssey minivan on the left, a souped up red Mitsubishi with a body kit and other Fast & Furious wannabe modifications on the right. Naturally, the stereo in the Mitsubushi was pumping out some bass-heavy stuff. Nas, unless I miss my guess.

But the minivan? Blaring even LOUDER. I mean ear-shattering. Journey. JOURNEY. "Don't stop Believin" and let me tell you what, the soccer dad behind the wheel was ROCKING OUT. He was dancing in his seat like he had a bad case of fleas, tossing his head and just WAILING out the tunes.

The look on the Mitsubishi kid's face was a study of fascinated horror and disbelief. He was being drowned out by a soccer dad and it was PRICELESS.

The only thing that could have made the scene better was if Soccer Dad was playing Tom Jones or something.

But you gotta admit. Journey? That's pretty good too.

It does kind of stink when you see your future before you. I would have enjoyed witnessing that myself.

Hey I'm from So Sioux Me, a girl empowerment blog.

Yesterday I saw a mini-van exactly like mine. 10-12 years old total soccermom on a budget van. So I'm all curious to see this kindred spirit - total black spiked mohawk - punk rocker.

Almost exactly the same hairdo as my baby! Total kindred spirit.

If you had said brown Pontiac Montana I would have bet it was my husband.

Awesome I hate to say I love Journey. Who says us oldies cant grove out too.

My husband rocks out to Journey so much I finally told him the Best of Journey CD was banned from the boombox on the deck.

I don't know, if you have an Attack Tribble, you're not too far from being a Trekkie. LOL! :)

I once sat at a stoplight behind a thirty-something man in a test-drive vehicle, watching him full-body-dance to rap music in his button-down white shirt and tie.

It was a fantastic moment :D
