My Exeptional Driving Skills

(with apologies to Smashmouth)

Yesterday there was disgusting traffic clogging up my evening commute. Folks are crashing into each other, other folks are straining their necks hanging out their car windows to gawk, it's just a really crappy scene, you dig?

Usually, driving is just an unwelcome annoyance standing between me and my lovely, quiet, no crazy people allowed evening. Yesterday, however, was every Nascar driving wannabe's dream. The radio in my head was cheering me on as I wove through the lanes: "Hey now, you're an allstar, go and drive down the road. Hey now you're a rockstar, oops you just killed a toad (all that glitters is gold, only shooting stars break the mo-o-old.)" Leaving bodies in my wake, horns blowing, fingers waving, babies crying and old folks cursing. I'm going home, son! Outta my way!

P.S. Check out this video my sister sent me. How cool is this?

Yes, I had seen this video before. Animals certainly feel compassion and this video proves it beyond measure. Amazing this dog without fear sacrifices its own life to try to save a fellow hurt animal.

It is official. I can not handle anything. I am sobbing like a baby. Thank god the dog lived or I might not make it through tonight.

Wow that gave me chills! I'm with 'woman in a window' I would have been good for nothing if the dog had died.

What an incredible video! I'm so glad to know that the dog lived and that the workers had enough humanity to help out....Peace - D

That is just unbelievable.

Suldog said...

Yeah, that vid of the dogs is amazing stuff. Another friend sent me that last week.

Our server is apparently freezing up and will not load the video. Although from the comments, it's probably just as well. I expect I would be reduced to a sobbing mess and need to take to my bed the rest of the day.
