Observations on your commute

.... to and from work, visiting friends, doctors appointments, etc...

Today;

On the subway a guy was playing guitar and singing for money and this line made me crack up: "You'll do anything to make me feel like an asshole."

Same subway, guy says to a woman and her 7-year-old son -- I guess we'll see you in the Olympics 15 years from now. The mother instinctively put her arm around her son and looked alarmed until the guy pointed out the kid walks on his toes -- a sprinter.

Woman in her 60s gets on wearing skin tight pants and big ol' biker boots with her hair all spiked up like hair was in the '80s.

I was about two blocks from the freeway, trying not to feel too smug but really enjoying myself... and a guy walking down the street said when I passed, "You DRIVE that car, girl."

maybe you had to be there...

I got out of bed and fed the cats and then realized I needed to roast some coffee for the next few days...so I delayed turning on the computer due to frequent blown circuit breakers while roasting lately...sure enough...a breaker blew. I finished the roast on the stove top using my whirly pop.
Then I turned on the computer...ta da... my commute today.

Wow! Must be the nearly palpable 100-yard aura of pure bliss that surrounds you when you're at the wheel.

(don't worry; it's okay to love it this much)

Driving home from work a few years ago on Main Street. Black lady crossing the street. Black man in the car next to me shouts out, "Hey, Girl!"
She turns around, glares at him and says, "Hey, BOY!"
He gets angry, "I ain't no Boy!"
She says, "I ain't no Girl neither!" and walks off...

Now that I have a (relatively) new car, I use the interstate. Smooth sailing today due to a lot of folks still at home. Won't be like that for too long, I bet.

That's a Beck song.

As long as these are the other lyrics you heard:

your brains went black
when she took back her love
and put it out into the sun
the birds did fly
when the heavens all went dry
and the cigarettes were smoking by themselves

she'll do anything
she'll do anything
she'll do anything
to make you feel like an asshole

call her name
she looks the same as you
question marks stretched across her skin
she dangles carrots
makes you feel embarrassed
to be the fool you know you are

she'll do anything
she'll do anything
she'll do anything
to make you feel like an asshole

No that's 100-yard safety zone when people see she's a girl at the wheel of some heavy duty machinery.

Yeah Danny, I think that was the song.

Also:

Walking through Times Square station, a guy was playing "Bridge over troubled water" on a saw. Neat.

I think you should come to L. A. and see just how wrong you are about my driving.
