Simple Pleasures

So I have been doing ten hour days at work again, going to work in the dark, driving home in the dark... Can be a bit depressing.

Thursday I was getting on I-5 to head home on an on-ramp where they have two lanes with the stoplights to let you on the freeway. The lights were going green-green almost in sync (other lane first) so it was like a drag race for the hole shot. I normally don't launch at these things anymore, but I had Captain Impatient lining up next to me.

Sure enough, we get our turn and Captain Impatient is anticipating the light, lurching multiple times until his back wheels are past the line, but still no green for him. Usually guys like that just go, but at least he was still waiting for green. His light was still red when I got my green. I barked the tires and roared off, laughing.

It made my evening, I laughed about it for a good part of my trip home. Simple pleasures.
