As we drove along the freeway today, New Girl and I passed a Jeep whose owner had replaced its soft top with a giant Australian flag. Patriotic and tasteful. New Girl leaned across me and gave the two male occupants a huge smile and thumbs up. Assuming we approved of their marvellous vehicular accessorising, they smiled back. Then, to my consternation, they continued to follow us along the freeway and on to the Hutton Street exit.
"Hmm," mused New Girl, "I hope that in modern day youth culture, thumbs up doesn't mean, 'Please follow us home and rape us.'"
