Traffic Log

My commute to work:
Stuck behind oversized combine pulling load of corn, moving 10 mph….
Then, smooth sailing until cookie-cutter subdivision sprawl infests roadway; 10 minute backup to pivotal intersection….
Final 2 miles, road crew shaves a lane with cones…crew stands around observing gridlock handiwork.

Total travel time: 50 minutes

Martin’s commute:
Stop to glance at wolf spider hanging from screen door….
Step over cat sprawled in grass.

Total travel time: 30 seconds.
