I'm Exhausted!

I hate to drive at night but, during this hectic time of year, I am forced to go Christmas shopping after dark. One night, I return to my SUV laden with packages, stow them away in the back, climb into the seat, fasten seat belt, turn on the ignition, put it in reverse to back out of the parking space when all of a sudden what looks like a white horse charges past the rear of my vehicle! My reflex was to stomp on the brake harder than necessary since I was barely moving at the time. Only then, did I realize I braked for my own exhaust! I sure do keep myself amused!
