You know that dream where you're flying? Andrew has it too, only in his case he's behind the wheel of his beater BMW. He's been taking a high-performance driving class, needing no encouragement to go too fast, he's learning techniques that will make him smooth. Short stops without skidding, sharp turns without screeching, pressure gauge in the glovebox to keep his tires firm. The other night he ran out of gas, coasted half a mile downhill in reverse. There's a 7 soaped on his window--a curious fingerswipe's width of it removed.
