Daily Commute

Sad when you become elated - completely and utterly elated - because you had a "breeze" of a commute - a mere 55 minutes today! Inevitably due to the fact that a huge percentage of the Route 1 population has taken off in anticipation  of the long weekend, and is probably frenetically packing the SUV for a jaunt down the shore.

Spotted on Route 1:

- A woman inching her way thru traffic while staring at herself in the rearview mirror and plucking her eyebrows. (A new one. Have seen a lot of makeup-applying and hair-doing, but never any legitimate plucking.)

- A crowned toddler princess holding court from the back of her mama's station wagon.

- A hoodlum of geese swaggering down the shoulder of the highway.

I just stumbled upon your blog by hitting "next blog" up at the top of mine, but I had to comment on this. I have a daily commute of just over an hour so I can totally relate to being excited if mine happens to come in at something like 55 minutes! It is easy what thrills me now that I've been a commuter for 2 years. On Friday I looked over at the car next to me and thought she was texting since she was looking down. But oh no... she was READING!! Had a book or magazine propped between her lap and the steering wheel. It's amazing what you have to tell people NOT to do!
