September 24: Extra sodas in the cooler

To turning all situations into a party  …

The details of where you are- nah, you don’t need money for this kind of trip. a farmer taps his cigarette out the window of an old Ford, bracing the engine in hopes it starts on green. A dad puts on a show for his van of kids crying kids, curious as to when his sportscar got so big. The young driver blushes as she hits the curb behind you and the veteran honks from three cars back to teach her a lesson. A mother cruises by as she drives her mom home from the doctor’s office, neutral in her smile and wondering where the time has gone. Why would we ever get out of this traffic? The city is throwing a party on the freeway and everyone is already here. No passports or motels necessary; it’s a free stay at hotel highway.
