I'm out for a spin with The Flatmate in his new Saab 93 Aero convertible. A tricked-out Toyota Supra with a lot of silly flares, spoilers and decals makes a great show of passing us on the inside lane, with the apparent intention of demonstrating the driver's incomparable virility.

The Flatmate: You see, in England people don't drive like that. I've only seen that in Australia.

Me: Obviously you don't have as many insecure Asian teenagers in your country.

Running out of space in the inside lane, the Toyota suddenly lurches back into our lane a few cars up, causing numerous brake lights to flare into life.

The Flatmate: Now he's just driving like a retard... no offense.

Me: ...

The Flatmate: Wait, that came out wrong...

Me: (unable to comment for three blocks due to paralysing gales of laughter).

The Flatmate: Okay, yes, very funny. Stop that!

Me: Wuh, I can't help it. You know, bein' retarded an' all.
