it was hard to stay mad at the Kia driver who tried to commit suicide by bouncing off the buick on the 101 this morning. he didn’t succeed, not even the bouncing part, but only because i’m really, really good at not letting stuff run into me. ’twas close, i’d say inches. but when i got up alongside him to him to give him a good gesturing, he was just shaking his head, and i thought, what a good way of conveying that he knew exactly what i would have been attempting to communicate, that is, that he’s an idiot and needs to … stop being such an idiot.
70 mph near-miss: excellent way to start the week out feeling awake and alive.
