The Choices We Make. [Oct. 28th, 2004|08:50 pm]
Sauce1977

Everyone has the power to do good or ill.

I almost hit someone today on a left turn . . . I was blinded by the setting sun, but it wouldn't have been a sufficient excuse if I had been quicker on the left . . . I would have pounded the guy. Instead, I thanked in quiet prayers my fortune to just miss clipping him, and I moved on down the road.

Then, someone pulled into a driveway just as I was about to leave a small village . . . I'd parked on a side street, and this luxury sedan pulls into the driveway, but not all the way, sticking me in-between a parked car in front of mine . . . and his quarter front panel.

I honked my horn, merely staring at him, then staring at his car. He glared back . . . in a moment of less-than-human trait, the suit-man, he continued to glare at me. Then, he started up the front of the walkway to the house.

So, I jerked my car back a bit, grinding against the curb, just to demonstrate that the only way out is through his q-panel with my shitty Chevy car. The temptation to back into his luxury sedan became quite pleasing to the thought. He took his time, returning with his date, and they got in the car and pulled out . . . to leave with no further escalation.

I didn't want to hit that guy, and I'm glad I missed him, on both counts, the blinded-by-sun street-crosser, and the aloof gentle-suit-man. To me, they were the same person, the one I do not wish to wrong.

I know!

I haven't been right today . . . basically, last night I spent mostly on the toilet, and the evacuation of all minerals has left me feeling drunk without being drunk.

The antioxidant intake goes slowly, but I'm happy to have not caused a great disturbance. :D

Hahahha . . . I went with an immunity and performance boost in a Jamba Juice smoothie earlier . . . my dinner was tofu, salmon, and tomatoes.

I'll have to peruse that aisle to check out the shot of a Pedialyte in the future!

Do not focus on the thoughtless suit-guy, or you will miss all the heavenly glory.

I would have peed on his back bumper while he was in the house. But that's just because I'm incontinent.

At times like the suit-guy incident, those times are almost too easy to forget about the other . . .

I'm a feces monkey, myself.

It would have helped to have had a lightsaber, if anything just to turn it on, mumble something about a refined weapon in a crude age, and probably just to wave it around . . .

honking always gets people madder. one of my classes is at the top of a big building, and i get to watch a particularly busy intersection and a particularly busy parking lot from one spot. occasionally i get to hear the frustrated broken-horn sound wherein someone just sits on the horn for nearly a minute. it never does anything, it's just like saying "shit!" really really loudly.
better to get out of your car and go 'hey, buddy. mind moving?' and acting all new york.

I know!

In comparison, Detroit drivers go beyond the honk.

It's not even an option. Honking can invite major conflict . . . people will stop in the middle of a busy street if you give them the business . . . even in the suburban areas.

I don't like the long-horn-sound . . . I don't think anyone does.

That sucks, and I hate when you can't see because of the sun. Sorry to hear, hope you're de-stressed by now. :)

If I couldn't let it go by now, then I'd probably look for treatment. :D

"it never does anything, it's just like saying "shit!" really really loudly."
after this i visualized a pedestrian encounter where someone cuts me off and i just stop and yell "shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit" for a minute or so.

it makes me laugh.

anyways.
i would imagine myself peeing on that gentle-suit-man's door handle, although that wouldn't be any high road. although i should get cosmic points, me being a girl and everything, that's quite the creative manouver. it's just one of those satisfactory ahhhhhhh relief sort of thoughts. you know the ones.

I think if I noticed a woman squatted in urine-mode, that would be a head-turner.

I know those kinds of relief moments . . . I love the late-night because of them. The world sleeps . . . I enjoy the silence. :D

You might be correct on that thought.
