the story of an invisible girl

My Mind Wanders
I was driving back from my lunch (wherein I got a haircut but am not sure if I like it), and I saw one of those huge trailers carrying a bunch of new cars.

Some of the cars actually had strips of plastic on them, like white saran wrap or something. For a moment, they looked like police cars, because of the white horizontal striping.

I mused for awhile about how neat that would be, so see a carrier full of police cars. And how you never do see those being transported from one place to another, so how do they get new cars anyway? Maybe they are transported in stealth, or never in mass quantities, or perhaps they just have to paint them upon arrival.

Then I thought how funny it would be if I saw a carrier full of police cars, all with their lights on! Then I imagined the carrier pulling somebody over, all those police lights whirling. That would be a sight to see. Even worse, imagine seeing one of those bearing down on you through the rear-view mirror.

Or it could be a carrier full of getaway cars, being pulled over by the carrier of police cars. How would you know they were getaway cars? Well I suppose the cars would be black, perhaps they'd be full of guys in black-and-white striped jumpsuits. Maybe even wearing black raccoon masks.

Imagine them all lined up against the police cars, hands and legs spread. That would be great!

But I really think my favorite part of the story is the transport carrier full of police cars with flashing lights.

You do know those are, essentially, for scratch protection?

Even if your ideas are more fun.

Though, I'm not sure the idea of having truckloads of new police cars is such a fun idea after all.

Oh yeah -- cool idea -- transport carrier full of police cars all with their lights on (although not the sirens, please!) -- but the image I got, starting with that, was the _carrier_ being pulled over (probably for speeding) by an already-deployed police car.

Okay, I have no way of knowing, but if I were a betting man, I'd stake a considerable amount on the notion that this sort of thinking is how Dr. Seuss got started on "To Think I Saw It All On Mulberry St."... I'm sure of it...

A sort of economy bulk-processing of getaway baddies by the cops, eh?
Yeah... I can see that...
