(For the past four years, I’ve used Reverb10 prompts to give myself a question to answer every day of December. It’s a great way to reflect on the year and set goals for the future. I’ve kept my favorite prompts, added a few from other sources like Project Reverband created my own month-and-a-bit of questions.)
Crazy. What one little thing drove you crazy this year?
The f-ing traffic. Seriously. Where is everyone in Los Angeles going at 4 in the afternoon. Or at 2? Or at 7 AM?
No matter which app I use to circumnavigate traffic I end up sitting in traffic on the way home. Stupid traffic. Sitting-there-for-two-lights traffic. With people pulling mean and selfish moves. But after a little while, I can see why people do mean things. They are sick of sitting in f-ing traffic!
I’ve been told that I need to just get some books on tape, or listen to lots of NPR. To change my attitude. To embrace it. I’m not there yet.
