So I’m driving home from work today. It had been a rather stressful day at work – as Monday’s usually are. I was tired, and more than a little irritated because I knew I couldn’t just go home. I had to go to my mom’s house because my sister-in-law’s brother was going to detail my car (yes, the car that I hate).
So I’m on the phone chatting with SavageSeas when I look to my right and see the most unexpected sight.
Next to me on I-4 as I was passing the Millenia Mall was an immaculately clean Corolla. Driving the car was a young and pretty twenty-something professional. Her hair was perfectly parted and combed. Her business suit was dark navy and pressed into crisp seams, even at the end of a long day at work. Her eyes were bright and she had a bluetooth headset in her ear.
She was the very picture of a Young Urban Professional. A Yuppie.
And then I saw this hanging from her rear-view mirror:
The image was so unexpected that I just had to laugh. It’s amazing the things you see when you stop and take the time to look around you. People are strange in such wonderful ways.
