Sunday Drive on a Monday...

by mozymozart on August 17, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I was in a bit of a hurry as I drove to work. A BMW was ahead causing traffic because he was driving 20 mph where should of been at leat 35mph. As I got closer to the car... I looked over. I saw a bald man, staring at the road as if in a daze and I thought 2 things... 1) WTF! It's rush hour, people trying to get to work! This is not a good time for a "Sunday Drive". Then I thought... 2) is this man sad? is he contemplating his every move...? maybe he got bad news... After those thoughts I eased up and thought... that I'm quite lucky to be happy today. I just hope this man has a great day!
