Out of the Blue

I had an adventure last night finding a previously never-visited (by us) train station after MrsBlue capped off a late night in the city by sleeping past her stop. I had one doozy of an adventure many years ago when I did the same thing myself on a subway ride... I think everyone who has ever commuted probably has one such story, a failure of the so-called "commuter's instinct" that usually wakes one before this happens. I also think many folks never repeat the experience, as the fear of reliving the trauma is enough to prevent it. I'm guessing this will be the case with MrsBlue, as she didn't seem to be able to find any amusement in this at all.

You guys won't believe what I saw this morning. I watched this person drive with windows down, I could hear no loud blaring music, he had nothing to read, nothing to drink or eat, no visible DVD or GPS screens, no kids or passengers for distraction, no phone, and this person had BOTH hands on the wheel. I couldn't believe my eyes, the nerve of people these days, it boggles my mind!
