Weird thought of the evening:
The problem with the expression “drive it like you stole it” is that if I were to actually steal a car, you can be darn sure I’d be following every rule of the road and trying to maintain as low a profile as possible.
And yet, the expression “drive it like you stole it” implies you’re going to put the pedal the metal and drive around like Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane is in hot pursuit.
And — uh… hmmm.
*That awkward moment you just told everyone how you would drive if you stole a car. Dammit! I gave away my strategy!
