She's Like The Wind

I took a shuttle from Torquay to the Avalon Airport just outside of Melbourne on what seemed like one of the windiest days ever.

A few of us had just spent the morning trying to swim in Bells Beach without our skin peeling off from being sandblasted.  Seriously.  That said, the water was amazing and the views spectacular...but holy moly, 40mph sand hurts.

On the ride, it was just me and the shuttle driver and so far, it had been a pretty quiet ride.  The shuttle was being pushed around a bit by the wind, but nothing too out of the ordinary.

Suddenly, the wind pushed the shuttle almost completely into the other lane and after he corrected the wheel, the driver said, "It's a bit like dancing with the wife that doesn't want to dance."

You'd need to hear the accent to get the full effect, but it made me smile.
