There are lots of things in this world I do not understand. Septum piercings, Mitt Romney, people who drive Hummers in cities, and fanfic are a few. Today Etsy introduced me to a new one. So did Fab.com.

While on our way to visit my sister and her family in New Hampster, Kelly and I were unfortunate enough to be stuck behind a car that started driving a bit erratically. Then things really got crazy.
