call for subjects, call for stories:

this week i am committed to doing something so uncharacteristically me that i might die. die, or find a new way of living. you should do the same. then post and tell your story.

here goes.

when i drive, the open road is freedom. anything between me and an open road is a cage. hence, i tailgate. i drive faster than anyone should. i do not enjoy driving because the road is somehow always closed to me, always someone or something getting in the way of me and openness. so. this week i am being different. i'm letting people pass me. i will not put lead in my shoes. i will not drive in the fast lane. i will not glare into the rearview mirror of cars in front of me.

me:

k, your turn.

  1. Have you read my post: http://mooniel.blogspot.com/2009/09/crazy-woman-driver.html

    This is hilarious to me because I canNOT picture you as a "Cruella" driver. My dad is one and he actually talks to and sometimes yells at other drivers with closed windows. It's times like those when I have to be careful about not lol'ing because it only adds to his frustration. Too bad I won't get a chance to witness it with you because you're going to be "different" from now on... At least you won't be as likely to hit bicyclists like me anymore! Hahah!
