Le Sigh

I am convinced that the Triangle region of North Carolina is home to some of the worst drivers in the country. I mean, I'm totally cool with people who drive the speed limit, but people who drive 10 under on a road where most people drive 10 over? That's just annoying. Or worse yet, people who come to a stop, A STOP, at an on-ramp to wait for a large enough clearing in freeway traffic to merge. Could they have not thought ahead and started looking at the traffic patterns before they got to the very end of the merge lane?

I guess my driving frustrations are starting to show. Today while riding in the car, once again frustrated at my fellow drivers, I heard Linus let out a big sigh. Unsure if I heard right, I questioned him, "What?" He again gave a very dramatic sigh. Thinking back, I realized that he was mimicking what I had just done when some irresponsible driver cut over 3 lanes of traffic while driving 20 under to catch an exit.

Lucky for me, a sigh was all I had for that driver. It used to be worse. I mean, my mom did teach me the superior communication ability of my middle finger in those situations.

They copy everything you do. Bailey just said, "Dang Nabit" when she was frustrated the other day. I say it when I am frustrated, kinda cute. Thank goodness you only sighed.

Oh yeah, I've got kids in my back seat yelling, "Hurry up! Can't you read the sign, lady?" I am so ashamed.

If all Bird does is sigh, I'll have it good. Because right now, "What the f*ck is your problem?" is what usually comes out of my mouth.

My momma is so proud.
