Hello, old friend

Dear Crazy Driving Lady,

Hello, old friend. I can't say that I've missed you since I last saw you. Last year sometime, I began noticing that on my way to work, I was always around this one particular car with an annoying driver - and it turns out it's your car! You would pull out about a mile down from where our neighborhood is, and we would follow the same path, until we parted ways right before I got to work. Why do you annoy me you ask? You cetainly like to whip yourself in and out of whichever lane is the one moving and you are always right up on the bumper of the car in front of you. I can't tell you how many times you have been on my rear. I always worried you'd hit someone because you go super fast and you followed so closely and because you don't seem to care if anyone else is around while switching lanes. I know that on days when my lane seemed to be moving slow, I could look ahead and see you just weaving between the lanes. Or if there were days when I was a little early, I would sometimes look in my rearview mirror and your car's nose poking out and moving in and out. It's almost comical how you are such an agitated driver, Crazy Driving Lady! Seriously, if you're that enthused about getting to work, leave a little earlier! And it might be sad to admit, but I realized after returning to work from maternity leave that I wouldn't be seeing you on a daily basis anymore, because I was leaving earlier! And I'm happy to say it had been over six months since I had seen you...

Until today...

I have been leaving the house later this week since I am not making a day care stop. And I was riding along, minding my own business, when all of a sudden I saw your little blue car doing its dance between lanes! I just had to laugh. I think the funniest thing though was when we got the intersection where we part ways. You turn, I go straight. As we were coming up on the intersection, the car in my lane whipped in front of you when it realized that was the turning lane and boy were you mad! You can dish it out, but not take it, huh? Did you just not like someone doing to you what you do multiple times on a daily basis?

I just thought I would say hi to you, since it's been so long since we've seen each other. I'm hopeful that I will miss you again tomorrow, as I have been lucky enough to do for most of this week. If not, I'm sure we'll cross paths again this summer.

Until then,


  1. This is seriously cracking me up! What a cute letter.

  2. What a hoot! You're hilarious!
