I noticed there was a homeless persons with a sign
begging at all four directions in the "islands"
at one of the intersections near the business
I had to stop at (the homebrew store I do my beer
appreciation class at ...).
I've never seen all directions "full".
Kind of strange.
Then the light changes, and I go, and I'm half way
into the intersection, some guy comes blazing through
in an SUV ... running the red light, many seconds
after it was red on his end.
So fortunately I have the state of mind that I'm
able think of hitting my horn ... two long "beeps".
I didn't really get a good look at the driver,
but there was a women in the passenger seat I saw
very clearly, and she had her hand up to her head
and her mouth was wide open, as if she was screaming
"I'm going to die!". If she was the boyfriend of the driver,
I hope she thinks of dumping the jerk, and giving
him a "Darwin Award". Although there is just as good of a
chance that she'll decide he is "Mr. Daring" for dashing
through the intersection ...
I notice all the homeless people in the intersections
looked to see what the honking was all about,
and turned their heads to look.
