Stop for a minute. “That’s a nice car you have there •—and a lot of nice people in it. A pretty wife and two happy child ren. You’re sitting on top of the world. “You’ve got everything you de sire, it seems. Everything except a few words I want to tell you. “I haven’t got a wife—yet. But I intend to have one some day. And I want that day to arrive with me all in one piece. So, buddy, I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t pass me on hills—YOU are endangering MY life. “And another thing; I haven’t got a big powerful car like your’s. Mine’s old, it won’t go too fast, and it rattles pretty had. But T like it and I want to keep it. So, buddy, I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t run up so close to me when you’re driving—-YOU are en dangering MY car. “You must have a nice job to own a big car like that. Well, I’m still in college and don’t have a job lined up yet. But I will, and I hope that eventually I’ll be able to afford some of the things you have. So, buddy, I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t drink while you’re driving or drive while you’re drink ing-—YOU are endangering MY fu ture. “Those sure are cute kids you have. Just like the ones I hope to have some day. Kids are almost a sure sign of happiness. And talking about signs, I’d appreciate it, buddy, if you’d obey the ones that have been put out for your and my f protection. YOU are en dangering you, me and everyone else.” “There’s a lot more things I’d like to tell you about. Like keep ing your car in perfect condition, signaling when turning or stop ping, dimming your lights when another car approaches, keeping your speed reasonable, staying in line. . . . “Now, mister, I know I’ve sound ed rather selfish and interested on ly in what you have been doing to endanger me. I’m sorry about that. Talking to you made me re alize that I’ve been doing things to endanger myself—and YOU. “We’re not all perfect — but some of us aren’t even trying.” It is common in Spain to present women with a bottle of Sherry wine after childbirth.
