Let it soak in…that’s how He thinks of me and you.
For some reason, I have had the funniest moments driving in the past few weeks. I blogged about the changing in the car incident… At least I think these moments bring a little bit of joy to the other drivers especially when they see me laughing at myself. Anyway, on to the story. This morning I had the glorious pleasure of sleeping in because I had to stay late at work for a staff meeting yesterday. I didn’t have to be at work until 9:30am!! I left my house at 9, got gas and still got to work by 9:30. Impressive if I do say so myself 🙂 I took the 280 to 94 way because traffic of course was wonderfully light. When I get on 94, I have to move over 4 lanes to exit on the right. So, I start moving over –mind you, I’m ridiculously careful about changing lanes– and I see this other car moving over from the opposite side. I proceed to freak out thinking that he’s trying to pull a two lane switch and go into my lane as well. He notices and I notice and then we’re both laughing really hard because he totally was thinking I was going to do the same thing to him! We proceed to laugh for the next few exits and play the awkward “is he/she looking at me” game. Needless to say, I like to think this little encounter started his day off a bit better than if he hadn’t had the pleasure of seeing me get really scared.
p.s. I was listening/singing to “Hiding Behind a Smile” by Matt Wertz at the time 🙂
