|This is why I am always 30 minutes late everywhere I go... I hit all the red lights!!!|
As I get older, I don't mind hitting the red lights so much.
Gives me the chance to people watch as drivers pass in front of me; especially if they are making a left turn.
Some people are rockin' out to their favorite tunes . This makes me smile and want to sing along...since I don't know what song they are listening to I just sing "watermelon watermelon" over and over and act like I am listening to the same song. The other day, the car next to me had the volume way up past obnoxious . but I didn't care. At least I could decipher what song was playing.. And I joined in with my own, "Gotta get dat boom, boom, boom"
|"Watermelon, oh watermelon, yeah, watermelon"|
Some people are Mr. Grumpy Gills and it makes me wonder why they're so mad.
|"Maybe I should just bcome a Chargers fan"|
Some people are knuckle deep in their left nostril and it makes me cringe with disgust and then wonder if I have a cub in the cave... so I go in half-knuckle, just to make sure I'm all good.

Sometimes parents are happily chatting with their children (makes me smile)
Some parents are yelling. I'll admit it, I've had my yelling moments. Like when you drive your kids all the way to school only to discover that one of them didn't put on their shoes.
|"What do you mean you didn't put any shoes on??"|
This makes me sad, so I make goofy faces at the kid as they drive by, in an attempt to make them smile.
|"Grandma was right! My face DID freeze like this!!"|
Today I realized what I must look like to the person in the car on either side of me. As I sing my Top 40 Watermelon Watermelon songs, with my finger up my nose, while making silly faces at passing motorists.
Yeah, I get some stares, some laughs, some evil eyes during the 30 to 45 seconds I"m at that light. But who cares what they think, right???
You have a choice. You can sit at that red light, staring at it, waiting for it to turn green. Or, you can watch the world around you and be a part of it. I choose to be a part of my world.
