Yesterday, in Traffic…

…while sitting behind a car, driving ten miles udner the speed limit, with their left blinker on for five minutes, that kept weaving into the median as if they were going to turn left at any second, but just couldn’t bring themselves to make that leap.

“COMMIT!” I shouted. I think I had been very patient up to this point.

“Maybe they’re like you, Ben, and aren’t emotionally ready for a commitment,” said the random girl who was riding shotgun.

Ouch.

  1. Well, I know people who have had their blinkers on in life, metaphorically speaking, for the past 5 years. And just from senility, not fear of commitment.

  2. Cap – At risk of spoiling something, the problem with Nice Ass is that I know how it ends, so I’m not eager to finish it.

    THB – So are you suggesting that I might simply be senile as opposed to emotionally unavailable? I’m not sure which is worse.

    You know how it really ends (and I can make a very good guess because I did lurk on your blog for a very long time) 🙂 But … you could still make something up, couldn’t you?

    Regardless of whether or not you finish it, you should know that it was a good story and that it engaged me as a reader. I think every writer (even if you aren’t published, you’re still a writer) should be encouraged when the praise is warranted.

    So there.

    10 mph under the speed limit… I would have kicked her ass out. But then again, I’m not known for my subtlety.
