On a chilly day, what better way to warm your heart than with some roadside Americana? I present to you… Balancing Yugos.
Pretty nifty, aren’t they?
When I was a teenager, I worked in a shoe store. My boss there had a Yugo in a color that is probably best described as “caucasian.” Stretched across the top of the windshield? A neon green lightning bolt sticker, of course. Because Yugos were all about speed and performance (in a not-so-speedy or performancy sort of way).
Just across the parking lot from the balancing Yugos was this painted V-Dub. Roadside jackpot.
When you don’t know what else to write, there is one tried and true phrase to fall back on. Two words that in their brevity say so much. Yes, keep this pair in your back pocket and you will never be stymied by profundity.
Your mom, indeed.
Stay smokin’, friends.
