I drove to work today for the 3rd time this year.
My wife is working today and my daughter is out of school for the holidays, so I planned to do the bus / train / bike trip together with my daughter. She’s accustomed to that so no big deal, but then last night the weatherman forecast rain for today.
I told my daughter to get her rain jacket out and pack a change of clothes (her bike doesn’t have fenders), when Sara suggested driving my daughter to the office. There’s a reason we use the acronym SWMBO, so of course I followed her suggestion, and besides it would allow us to sleep in an extra half hour and still get to the office on time.
Except a couple of cars flipped over on Highway 101 near Embarcadero blocking three of the four northbound lanes, and I stepped into the office an hour later than usual. My back hurts and my shoulders are stiff from sitting in the car for nearly two hours. And wouldn’t you know it, the weather is absolutely gorgeous this morning.
My daughter just told me, “Dad, we should’ve rode our bikes today.” Agreed.
