Alas, another crappy commute home from my job up near The Perimeter, just off exit 29, Ashford-Dunwoody.
Anyone who has ever driven that route, knows this area to be incredibly congested. I mean, you can be tooling along with exit 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20….whizzing by you, maybe hitting speeds of 75-80 on really sunny, dry days and then …..screech! You test the anti-lock breaks as you come to a dead stop, oh… around exit 22. Those of you out there reading this, who drive this route are nodding your heads so wildly, you are giving yourself a whip-lash!
OK, so what to do? Well, tonight as I was driving home at the high-test speeds of 25 – 30 mph, I see this really odd looking VW Beetle in my right rear-view mirror. I’m driving the Mustang with the convertible top down, which I rarely do because I hate for my hair to get messed up, but I thought…”it’s been a long day, I’m going home anyway….it’s hot and sunny…..WTF.
Well, I see this really odd car coming up, I realize it’s this zany looking old VW Bug, it has big spot lights on the top, a howling wolf sticker on the side window and no driver’s side door. The guy driving it looks like Indiana Jones….well, not as good-looking as Harrison Ford, but you get the picture. The only thing missing were the Germans chasing him, a whip and a pretty girl. I always hate my commute, but sometimes, it’s worth it, just to see what Atlanta has to offer!
