Seriously, it was 76 degrees. The sky was blue. The wind was light. I just left Expresso off Reynolds and Brownstone Avenue. I wanted to go to Russ’s car wash. They were closer. I have all-wheel drive though. Russ’s conveyor doesn’t work with all-wheel drive. So I went to Expresso. I don’t know why I gave you all those details.
I had just washed my car. That’s the point. I went to pick up something from home. Might’ve been to pick up a small human who looks just like me. I got back to my car not 10 minutes later. There it was. Right under the window trim.
In that moment, I had to choose a single reaction from no less than 100 possible reactions. Most of them involved strong language and things that would physically hurt my body. There was only one reaction from that batch that would make my life more enjoyable. I could just clean the window. But I probably picked from the 99.
