Stumble out of bed – put on coffee-machine – let dogs out fill the food and water bowls shower knock elbow trying to do 5 things at once in shower F*ck towel off and put on underwear pour coffee and head back to bedroom finish dressing, hair, eye-shadow, mascara, lip gloss chase dogs out into garden lock up get into car search play list on Ipod gnarls barkley aaaaaaandâ€¦drive.
Not that I`m awake at this point. Just merely functioning. But I`m zipping through traffic, well aware of the fact that I`m late to get to an appointment. See car behind meâ€¦he`s driving fast. I drive faster. He speeds up. I change lanes. He changes lanes. I speed up some more and so does he.
I see the robot and there`s an arrow, but it`s turning orange. I take the arrow and turn into Suikerbossie drive. Crazy guy takes the gap and he`s still right behind me.
Racing down Suikerbossie nowâ€¦I don`t know why though. Why not just let him pass? He keeps up. Seems like he`s actually taunting me. Turn into Bill Bezuidenhout. Furtively look around. Got nailed by traffic officers for driving too fast in their precious 60 zone last December. No Copsâ€¦. I`m racing now. He`s still right behind me. I`m annoyed now. Approaching traffic intersection at Bill Bezuidenhout and Strand. Change lanes to turn into Strand. I indicate. Light is red.
I stop. Crazy guy is now in the lane next to me to cross the intersection. I look over. He`s wearing shades. He`s cute. No…he`s hot. More masculine â€¦my kinda` guy. He`s looking at me, grinning. I scowl at him. I look away fast. Double take.
OH. MY. HAT. It`s OOAâ€¦.
He signals to me that I must role down me windowâ€¦My heart is in my throatâ€¦
I tap the button and the window slides down.
OOA: *smiles* Good morningâ€¦how are you?
JD: *tries to smile. Comes out as a constipated grimace* I`m just peachy. How are you?
JD: Uhâ€¦did you know it was me in front of you?
OOA: Yeah! I don`t make a habit of racing after strange women
JD: *thinking: he doesn`t think I`m a strange woman*
OOA: And besidesâ€¦you`re hard to missâ€¦
JD: Oh, how so? *I`m trying to breathe. Having trouble*
OOA: Wellâ€¦*laughs* you`re the only person I know who drives a Honda like it`s a Ferrariâ€¦
JD: Umâ€¦oh. *Thinking: when did he notice my driving*
OOA: Anyway, lights going to change soon. It was a real pleasure driving to work with you
JD: *strangled sound in back of my throat. I WISH*
OOA: Have a good dayâ€¦
JD: Ok, you tooâ€¦ *smile*
OOA: By the wayâ€¦green really suits you. brings out your eyesâ€¦
JD: Thank you *He noticed my eyes. He. Noticed. My. Eyes!*
OOA: Bye-Bye *waves. Drives off into the sunsetâ€¦.*
Ok. Not really sunset, more like morning mist and smog.
But damn, who`s a happy bunny this morning?? *grin*
