One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

Last night, as I approached the roundabout, a Honda burst into the intersection. I was forced to yield. The small arm of the passenger extended out of the window, and I figured they were flipping me off. They wanted to infuriate me! As the Honda worked it's way around the roundabout, I planned on returning the gesture. The Honda neared, and the passenger came into focus.

It was a kid. A very young boy holding a toy airplane out the window.

He stared at me, and I tried to smile. I tried to mask my embarrassment. I was convinced the passenger wanted to piss me off. Turns out the passenger just wanted to fly his airplane. I had a hate mirage.
