No coffee needed.

As I turned into the road that takes me past the casino to the hotel this morning, I was driving in the left of two lanes, passing a van. I tend to drive rather rapidly, you know. This road has four lanes, two on either side of a wide, grassy median. I glanced at my rear-view mirror, then looked ahead...into the eyes of the little old lady who was merrily driving in my lane, GOING THE WRONG WAY.

I quickly moved into the right lane, deeming it far too early in the day to play chicken. Plus, those little old ladies can be ruthless. I didn't want to risk it.

At least the shot of adrenaline to my system woke me up quite nicely.

I just thought of that scene from Plains, Trains and Automobiles.

You're Going the Wrong WAYYYY!

Give me a call tomorrow if you're around, I'm home sick (just a bug, nothing really) and am just hanging around.

Will do, B.! I'll be at work, but it looks to be a slow day.

Woof... Glad you're okay! Hopefully the little old lady is too!

I actually did that once, turned the wrong way down a 1 way street just after taking my SAT's.

Talk about scary!
