I have found it very hard to take off my “must be ready for any asshole on the road” hat since I have been living in Idaho as opposed to poo-poo California. People drive REALLY slow here. I feel like no one here is in a rush to pick up a kid, get to work on time or make some appointment. It’s this attitude of “if I get there, I get there….” that I so desperately want to embrace, but can’t.
As much as I want to, I cannot get my mind wrapped around that attitude. I’ve lived and been around to much of what you see in the picture to the right. Every single person in every single one of those cars pictures is an A-1 prick with a 3+ ton killing machine in their hands.
But here….here, I get stuck staring at the butt of a Dodge 2 rear wheeler 4×4 with “howtobeacowboy.com” on it’s side and going 20 miles an hour on the freeway and I really can’t help but laugh. And so I do, I laugh and say “if I get there I get there.”
