There's an open hydrant at 108th and Columbus. I cross the street, so as not to get soaked. I am almost hit by a police car speeding towards the hydrant. To close it, I think. (Open hydrant wastes a million gallons of drinking water a day.) Cop car swerves, backs up, realigns, jockeys into position directly beneath the full force of the waterfall. Why? Won't the driving officer get soaked? Nope! All she wants is a free carwash. She takes her time, inching the car back and forth, back and forth, making certain car's exterior is thoroughly drenched. As soon as she's finished, she speeds away, making way for the lineup of trucks and cars, now waiting their turns, behind her.
