So this morning I was waiting in the cold for the bus. Some miraculous feat of willpower has overtaken me, and I am taking the bus to the train station instead of driving. It's saving us $100 a month, so it's something, anyway. I don't mind the actual riding on the bus part at all. It's the waiting in the cold and the having to get up earlier part that I abhor. I've never been much of a morning person if that morning involves an alarm clock, and the last thing I want to do is sleep less and stand in the cold and wait for the bus. But hey, here I am, suddenly Mrs. Willpower, and I've saved $200 so far.
So, like I said, this morning I was waiting in the cold for the bus, and I started watching cars as they went by. And then I started counting how many of each car type I saw. Luckily I only had to wait five minutes today, but here's an inventory of cars I saw in the right lane heading east down Mass Ave in Arlington:
1 Saturn (not counting Bryan's)
1 Mack Truck
Boy - I hope the rest of my day is as exciting as that five minutes was!
