No, actually, I’m not sure why traffic has seemingly increased since June. My best guess is that it’s summer vacation and everyone out of school with a car is probably tooling around the bay because hey, that’s what I’d do in their position. If I wanted to be emotionally and intellectually mature about it, I’d plan ahead for the increased traffic, making sure I leave home with enough time to compensate for it and still get to work at a decent time. I’m trying to do that. I am.
But even though I have no proof that it’s the kids, I still dream of school being back in session. Or a bullhorn. And a monster truck. And maybe one of those bulldozer-scoop things like in that movie where Soylent Green was people and I’m really starting to scare myself so I’ll stop now.
