I commute 50 miles to work each way five days a week.
It's really not that bad...mostly Interstate travel.
I was asked recently if I see the same cars on my commute to and from work. You would think that I would but I don't normally recognize the cars around me from one day to the next.
Maybe it's because it's normally dark as I drive in - I head out around 6:15 a.m. most mornings.
Maybe it's because I'm too busy reading license plates and mocking those who I think have a longer commute than I do.
Maybe it's because I'm in a zone and just don't process the cars that either I'm passing or are passing me.
Well, that all changed this morning. I pulled out of Starbucks after my daily stop for caffeine and recognized not a car but a license plate.
Wonder why I remembered it?
