I don't want to complain because Centerpoint has done a wonderful job restoring power. We still don't have any, but should by the end of the week. The poor people working for Centerpoint are working AROUND the clock, while trying to recover from Ike on their own. Thank you Centerpoint for your diligence.
So, back to the traffic last night. I was frustrated like everyone else, but when traffic is that bad...what are you going to do about it. So I was just praying that people would stay calm.
While I was on Westheimer last night, I noticed something strange in my rear-view mirror. The woman in the Camry behind me was licking the lid to an ice cream container. One like those pictured above. She was going at it too. Every couple minutes she would put the lid down, only to pick it back up with MORE ice cream on it. I realized...she is using the lid as a scooping device!!! This led me to the following thoughts.....
1. We are not moving AT ALL and are no where close to a grocery store...Where did she buy the ice cream?
2. WHY would you buy ice cream when traffic is out of control??
3. WHY is her dark red lipstick STILL on with all that licking and wiping with a napkin???
I am sure she did groceries and was not anticipating the traffic, but it was still a very humorous 10 minutes for me.
I hope you all survived the traffic. I hope it is better today. :)
