I did a lot of driving today, so I had a lot of time to think...about driving.
And to be grateful that I live in the place everyone seemed to be driving AWAY from!
Not in a sense of "I want to be a hermit and live alone, ALONE," but in a sense of "This is the end of a vacation week, and since everyone's driving in the opposite lane--away from my hometown--I must conclude that they all were vacationing at my hometown and going to their homes." And they were leaving at the last possible minute in order to get to their homes to go to bed and wake up for school/work tomorrow, so they must not only have chosen to spend their free time here, but to have stayed until the bitter end of vacation.
My conclusion: I live in a pretty nice place.
