I would just like to apologize to the drivers at the corner of Balboa and Ventura Blvd at 9:11 a.m. today where I was stuck in the middle of the intersection, trying to turn left. Especially you,the motorcycle at the front. I will bake you cookies if that would help. I was the one more car that thought I could go and blocked all lanes of on coming traffic.
You see, I was behind a cement truck and couldn't see that the arrow had turned red, although looking back I should have just assumed it had because I don't have that great of left turn luck. I wasn't even on a cell phone or dancing to my favorite song on the radio. I hope you could tell that I was mouthing 'I'm so sorry" and waving pathetically. I really meant it. Four lanes of traffic I had to get through while you were trying to go. It was tough. I didn't think I'd make it for a second there. I had to rest a minute in the Smart and Final parking lot (where I was picking up wide mouth lids for Chani's apple cake I'm canning) to recuperate from my embarrassing and dangerous escapade. Wow. I am terribly sorry for being 'that car' stuck in the middle, slowing your morning commute. I really am a nice person. Usually. I don't think I had enough sleep last night. And I was just so thrilled to finally have again that I was running lots of errands. I really needed avocados.
And for all you mad honkers are there...we idiot drivers are really sorry, sometimes we are in lala land. This is why I don't have an ounce of road rage, we recipients rarely do. Because I get why you cut me off, cause maybe you got an emergency call and need to go home right now. I have no idea what is going on in your car, and I try to think the best. Maybe your newborn is screaming or all three of your children are screaming at the same time. Or maybe you are from out of town and aren't aware that you can only exit the carpool lane in certain places. Who knows, but I feel ya, especially today. Hopefully I can rectify my karma.
