This morning was a lovely drive. Yes, into work. Boo for work. But there seemed to be something special about it, almost magical.
I had the 80’s station on the sat radio. Teagan had not liked the song on the Alt station and I was hunting for some music she liked. English Beat came on – Twist and Crawl – and she liked that. Girls get dropped off at day care, with little trouble, so, off to work.
Up until the tunnel, (that seems to scare most other drivers), the ride was relatively normal. Traffic, idiots in the passing lane going 30 miles slower than the rest of the people on the road. Grrrr.
Anyway. That all changed at the tunnel. Just as I come out of the tunnel, the sun comes out from behind a cloud, Talk Talk (by Talk Talk) comes on, the truck in front of me moves immediately to the right lane, I accelerate up the hill. The sun strobes start flashing in time to the song. Awesome!
I still have open road in front of me. Traffic seems to have just gone away and is unusually light. So not the normal stop and go morning commute. Wonderful.
Red Skies by the Fixx comes on. The strobes pulse in time.
Or, it was, until the last exit. Two miles from the office. Accident. Three lanes merged into one. It took almost 20 minutes to finish the ride in.
I had to pee.
