Ziiiiiiip

So, this is what life is like in the city -- I'm excited because I've found a new route that's shaved minutes off an otherwise not-really-so-bad-anyway drive. I have told others about said route, even though they never need to go where I'm going. But they applaud my achievement anyway, understanding the joy.

I am not so sure that kids are wired this way, so my picture book idea "Greg Skips Four Traffic Lights and Finds a Street that Cuts at an Angle" is likely to stay in draft form for awhile longer yet....

You have no idea how happy that proposed book title made me. :)

Mine for the day? Kelly is Thrilled to Find an Open Checkout Lane with Nobody Ahead of Her

But if you tell people about your secret route, it won't be a secret anymore, because they will tell other people, who will then drive where you are, and then you will be in a traffic jam and have to find another less crowded route.

Whoa, Kelly. That's like the start of a whole SERIES of books....

And Lisa, that merely opens up another avenue for satisfaction down the line. This new route of mine replaces one found last year that I talked of endlessly for weeks. Who knows what next year will bring!
