That certain stance…

You know the stance, that certain stance a boy or man gets when standing beside a car, on a highway, in the middle of no where.   My question to the man who was not a child; “there is a public bathroom half a block away.  How old are you?”  His passenger had a stony straight ahead look as I drove past.   When you see a little man doing this beside a car, with a dad or mom shielding the little butt, it is okay.  But, a grown man, at 11 in the morning,  by a busy exit to the tunnel and a car dealership to the right.   Just saying, “come on.”   What you may see by the side of the road, in the morning heat of a big city, on the coastland. 

My mother’s critical gene just surfaced.  Oh, the angst of it all.  It is official. I am becoming my mother.   And, Geri – don’t laugh, I hear you laughing.

I’m trying new contacts and  I still have to use reading glasses.  It is so much easier just to put on a pair of glasses.   One of the many pleasures which comes with age.  Aging is not for wimps.  Stay safe.

  1. Wouldn’t you just love to drive past and honk the horn and watch him jump? :)

  2. Drove to school last night to work on my classroom. I went by the high rise and there was some dude peeing on the lawn. Right by the road. Ewwwwww.
