Drive by, hooting.
Yesterday was the first day in six weeks that I was allowed to drive. And I didn't go anywhere...
Six weeks, no driving, no missing it. Who'd a thought? Ironically, yesterday was also the first day I had to be at home in a long time - for FedEx pick ups and deliveries - but I was in no rush to get behind the wheel. It just struck me as curious that something that so many of us do without thinking, something that facilitates so much and is such a big part of our independence-valuing culture, could not leave a void when I was deprived of it.
I don't imagine I'll be able to keep avoiding it for too much longer though. Could you?
