I’ve been taking 40 to work at the game studio. It’s about a 30-minute drive from my apartment, if I don’t encounter any traffic, accidents, construction, or Mercury being in retrograde, so I have to leave pretty early because apparently adults allow for delays so they can get places on time. Whatever.
Today it took me exactly 31 minutes, the absolute best-case scenario, so I got to the studio quite early. I must have hit that sweet spot after schoolbus hell and before rush hour hell, or maybe no one rear-ended anyone else on 40 today, or just maybe, after a decade or so, I’ve finally gotten good at this driving thing.
Then I remember that today is Good Friday, so almost everything is closed, and almost no one is on the roads.
