I was heading home from work today fighting the traffic on I-40. I have a lot on my mind as I need to fly back to Cape Cod this week for some personal business.
I took it easy and made my way to my exit. It is a long off ramp that curves to the right and then left before it drops you off at a stop sign. I had to cross three lanes of traffic to make my left so I sat there waiting for a clear spot to occur in the cross traffic. Then a motorcycle pulled up to my right. It was a crotch rocket. If I did motorcycles that would be what I would get.
The rider looked at me through his full face helmet and was saying something to me. My windows were all ready down, but the helmet just allowed a “MMMFFF mmmmfff mmffff” to get through. He reached for his visor and lifted it up and said “That’s a very beautiful car you have there. You enjoy it”! My face beamed and I thanked him. Then a gap opened up and I shot across and to my left heading the rest of my way home.
It is a beautiful car and I do enjoy it. I try not to forget how lucky I am.
