traffic jam fun


i ran into a traffic jam on my trek from lawrence to kansas city this morning. i had nearly reached 435, the outskirts of the city, and to get that far only to hit traffic put me in a seriously lousy mood. and just then christy called. i asked her what she was up to, and she said, "well, i'm behind you." no kidding! she really was. friends and fellow bloggers stuck together in a traffic jam in another city? i have to say that lifted my spirits. and i got a little kick out of wondering how far those cell phone signals had to travel around the skies above when we were just mere feet from each other.

by the way, i can't hear much of anything right now. either it's the result of a cold, or trauma from swimming laps this week. all i hear is nutty stuff bouncing around my head. so if you comment, you'll have to do it loudly or i won't hear you :)
