  • Waiting for a ride

January 11 – Monday morning


Some casual carpoolers

Bad ride today.  Tiny car with a hapless passenger squeezed in the back seat.  I get in front next to a driver who looks like he’s 12 years old.  No one returns my good morning greeting.  It’s about 30 degrees outside with the wind-chill factor, and I realize too late there is no heat in this wretched car.  I should have gotten out when I had the chance.  I’m thankful that traffic is fairly heavy – it keeps the driver down to a safe speed.  This is not a happy way to start the week.
