ErikaRobin's Journal

Delusions of grandeur.

As I saw you stopped behind me at the light this morning, a short film ran through my mind...starring you. I imagined you parking your Lexus in the lot, grabbing your Starbuck's Morning Fix, adjusting your sunglasses and walking in to your job.

I thought of how many people's lives you would touch today.

Maybe you work at a bank where you would be granting someone's loan, making all their dreams of opening their own bait and taxidermy shop come true. Maybe you'd be turning down that loan on the basis that the 1974 AMC Gremlin they drove up in can no longer be considered collateral.

Perhaps you're in real estate and you were on your way to a very important closing that would pay for another month or two of driving that luxury sedan or nearly pay for your youngest child's first year at the University.

Maybe you're one of the administrators at the hospital and you were on your way to meet with your fellow administrators and discuss important things like whether or not the new hospital security cars should be white and blue or blue and white.

The light changed then and we parted company, you headed to the East and I headed to the South.

So, dear madam, wherever it was that you were going at 8:00 this morning, drive safely, do a terrific job and please know that you looked fabulous!

...and I saw you picking your nose.

Haha!  Why do people think they are invisible in their cars?  Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode about that?

OMGosh...I hate when your nose bothers you in the vehicle and you don't know what to do about it....LOL Maybe she didn't care. She had probably been avoiding dealing with it till she couldn't take it any longer...HAHA :)

Ha!  That's so funny!  I was thinking something similar when I, in my Frankenvan heading home after work one day, was stopped next to a. . . Lexus, with a very attractive female driver, who was working furiously at at zit on her chin.  She picked and squeezed until the light changed. . . but she continued to pick and squeeze.  I wondered how she managed to stay in her lane (and how I did, fascinated as I was by her activities).  I hope all worked well for her.  I'm pretty sure, though, that she could afford some pretty fine blemish creams and could have avoided that display altogether. . .

I'm so tired of you stalking me, ErikaRobin. Get a hobby. And don't act like you don't know what I do for a living. Hospital administrator? Hardly! You know I'm in "show business." I'm tired of justifying my reasons, but these hamhocks pull in a grand a week and I'm gonna flaunt what I got, you nose?
