Someone commented on my blog this morning, they were referring to my "rant" the other day about health insurance. Funny thing is, I could go on again about that today.
But instead, I want to keep today's post nice and light.
I have discovered that I am now nearly invisible on the road. Or anonymous. Nobody knows who I am anymore. See, I used to drive this bright yellow Chevy. It was cute and sporty. There weren't too many like it on the road, so if you saw one in an area where I was, chances were, it was me. Now I drive a blue SUV that looks like everyone else.
This morning I was driving down the road to work. (really it was a major highway) I checked my rear view mirror and I saw a silver car that was the same make as my sisters. I wondered briefly to myself if she had a sunroof because this car did as well. Then I noticed the driver looked like a cute blonde. My sister just so happens to be a cute blonde. My sister also takes the same route as I do for work most of the time, so it isn't unusual for us to be on the road at the same time.
I decided to change lanes to give the driver a chance to pull up next to me. As I did I noticed her license plate and recognizing a few letters, I was pretty sure it was her. As the driver pulled up next to me, completely ignoring me (good job keeping your eyes on the road, I probably should have done the same!) I realized that it WAS my sister. I grinned like an idiot and waved.
She kept ignoring me and then passed me.
So I called her cell phone. She cheerfully answered and I said "You don't know my car on the road anymore!" and she responded with "Oh! Can you see me? Where are you?"
I told her that she had just passed me and she said "oh yeah, I didn't realize that was you at all, all I knew was that there was an SUV in front of me with tinted windows and I hate that!"
We both thought it was pretty funny.
And I decided that if the weather is nice this weekend, I am going to ask my husband to put that sticker on my car. We purchased a sticker for my car. The one sticker it will have. We got it to match the sticker on his car. I'd give you a few more details about our cars and the stickers, but I wouldn't want anyone to recognize me.
I kinda like being an Anonymous Driver.
