I’m glad I got to the point where, when stopped at an intersection full of cars, that I think blasting my car stereo is cool.

Social distancing doesn’t mean you walk out in front of cars to avoid other people in the Super Target parking lot 🙄

Do you ever feel like your turn signal is too loud so then you just turn it off?

Traffic jam for May 1st, 2019

Traffic jam for May 1st 2019

Guys there’s some kinda emergency thing going on right now at the intersection of 1st Street and Prairie Street in St. Charlies. Firetrucks, ambulances, police cars — the whole works.

My guess is that Chef Roby of Geneva was up bragging about his latest Food Network show and the local aggressive geese didn’t like it. Maybe Sammy and his mad bikes were involved. I don’t know.

Anyway, avoid crossing the mighty Fox River via Prairie if you got somewhere to be this Wednesday afternoon.

Mad from a distance

tcr! · Apr 16, 2019 at 1:19 pm

Audio (MP3): 20190416 - Mad from a distance

Green stoplights

Yesterday I pulled up behind a silver car waiting at a stoplight. There was another white car to my right, double parked with the blinkers on. Maybe a foot from my passenger side door. Three cars packed together like a Tetris L.

An older, burly dude was walking slowly down the sidewalk, eyeing the parked white car. I assumed it to be his. I also knew there was no way in hell he’d be able to open his driver’s side door. There wasn’t any room with his double park for him to get in.

I started to feel tense. Totally ready for the stoplight to turn green so this whole situation would go away. I like stuff to go away.

“…to own and tend. …to control and parse.” 😊

Exactly. I don’t know why I sometimes think that another’s feeling is mine to manage. I got enough going on with just me. 😊

I just turned on my left blinker and the windshield wipers start wiping. There was washer fluid everywhere. I barely made my left turn.

This is why I don’t everything.

I could get around a lot quicker if my stoplights were always green.

Is there somebody I can talk to in traffic control about this?

Maybe a transmitter I can mount to my windshield?

It’s quite likely that the traffic lights in your area do have prioritization for emergency vehicles, meaning the light turns green as they approach. Simplest solution: steal an ambulance. Or a fire truck.

tcr! tcr! · Jan 14, 2019 at 10:06 pm

I’ve always wanted an ambulance like they had in Ghostbusters 🚑 👻

I gradually lost sight of her

tcr! · Oct 30, 2018 at 1:39 pm

Audio (MP3): 20181030 - I gradually lost sight of her

Fall driving

I was driving to work this morning as I do. A black Honda Civic sports car pulled up alongside me, a lady about 10 years older than me behind the wheel. When we got to the next stop light she continued to inch her Honda closer and closer toward the intersection.

I said to myself, “You wanna race? I’ll give you a race. I’ve got a 1999 V6 that runs good on regular gas.”

I didn’t have my racing gloves with me but that didn’t matter. And then I couldn’t go full balls when the Christmas lights lit up anyway. With the other cars in front of us and all.

So then as we barreled north, she in her black car and me in my black truck, she continued to apply horsepower. As did I. As the traffic would allow.

But then I had thought that wasn’t my own.[1] Here’s this little older in a sports car, probably having the time of her life. Roaring around like Thelma and Louise and then here I am wanting to take that away from her, not even attempting to be my best self.

And then I slowed down.

Let other people win, peeps.
