bye bye midwest
Things I’ve seen on the road today. Just to list a few:
1.) People picking their noses. I have written about this before and again I am confused. They are called windows people, but hell- who am I to judge. Dig away!
2.) “Be a flirt and lift up your shirt!” written on the back of an 18- wheeler. (Please excuse me if you are one of the non-skeezy truck drivers out there and ignore this.) I have kept my mouth shut about this for SO long because I hate categorizing people, but really? I have had enough Skeez-dog truck drivers! Your sign would have been funny if you all hadn’t tried terrorizing women like me on the road for years. Enough honking, beeping and trying to box me in with your fellow operators on the road you ass. Do they put this as a requirement in your training or something? Get a friggin’ life.
3.) Teenage girls singing at the top of their lungs. (So fun, love that.)
4.) Teenage boys in a Jeep (from Virginia no less!) with it so weighed/packed down I wonder if they will make it to wherever they are going.
5.) About 600 silos. By 600 I mean about 9 million. I am from Vermont. I thought I knew what a lot of silos looked like. Nope. Not before driving through the midwest.
So I hit more traffic in Wisconsin and Minnesota than I ever hit going up I95 or in NYC (odd, I know,) but I am still trucking. Seeing more and more state signs like this (I had to be Ok with a rest stop rather than actual road sign today, I nearly crashed the car trying to snap the photo I wanted on the interstate):
I found a place to exercise Pablito too. See him at the very bottom? I always think these PET EXERCISE AREA signs are funny:
A good day on the road, lots more to go. I even talked to a gal pal who lives in Alaska that I went to high school with today. We’re going to meet up. YIPPEE! I have literally not heard her voice in 16 years and all it took was one email. I love modern technology.
Coffee is empty. On the road again….
