Tappity tap tap

I hate break tappers.  You know the people who hit the breaks for a millisecond ever 2 seconds.  hey guess what break tappers, remove foot from accelerator - I can pretty much guarantee that the same result will occur - SLOWING OF YOUR VEHICLE.

So maybe I have road rage.  So what if I do.  I’m sure it doesn’t help that I learned to drive in southern CA where the median speed on the free way is 97mph.  I’m pretty sure that if you actually go below 80mph there you will get rear ended, fly across all 8 lanes of traffic and die.  And I’m sure it also doesn’t help that I now live in northern CA where people drive generally at sane speeds (ie - the actually speed limit).  But for some reason i still have a need for speed (yeah yeah lead foot whatever).  Its not even a need for speed, its consistency.  Why do we have to go 80/20/72/34mph in a looping rollercoastery speed fashion.  I don’t know...

Is this a big deal?  No.  Do I realize this?  Yes.  Does it still annoy me?  OH YES!

In other news we’ve completely skipped Thanksgiving and gone STRAIGHT to Santa’s workshop threw up in your local convenience store.  And sadly I am now part of this horrifying commericalization wherein we skip all other holidays and go straight to the gifting holiday - yes that’s right, I listened to Christmas music today.  And guess what?  I liked it!  Now that I think about it break tapping kind of looks like twinkling Christmas lights... ;)

Happy tapping!
