I Know

I know why road rage exists! As I was driving to work this morning, I was thinking... and I remembered a particular incident that was a prime example of road rage stimulation. This was the situation:

I was at a stop-light facing south in the far right lane on a four lane road (2 in each direction). I had about 1/3 of a mile to get in the left lane so I could make a left hand turn at the next street after the light. The light turned green and I started looking for my spot. A gap of at least 6 car lengths opened up, so I positioned myself to make my lane change and turned my blinker on. It was at this moment a guy in a pick-up slammed on the gas to close the 6 car length gap I had. After a near collision I modified my lane shift to get in behind the truck. His move was unnecessary and idiotic and would cause anyone to fume from the ears and want run this turkey off the road. To cap it off, this genius lives in my neighborhood! No, this was not on the highway far from home; this moron performed his act of stupidity 4 blocks from his own house! Dude, now I know where you live! I should get some eggs and TP and head on over to his place.

A couple weekends back, my family visited from Wisconsin. As custom, we talked for a while in my driveway before they hit the road. While we were chatting a comment was made I will never forget: "Do you always have your balls hangin' out in the yard?" The question was posed by my grandmother, which made it all the more funny. Soon after I began laughing uncontrollably she scolded me for having such a dirty mind, and then a second comment I won't forget was made: "What else are you supposed to think?", which was voice by my grandpa. Priceless... I think I'll have to make sure I keep my basketball out of the yard.

I agree with Mark Cuban(blog entry), maybe not in the sense that Bill Simmons is my new hero or anything like that. However, I think Mr. Simmons wrote one of the most intelligent articles(article) in regards to the NBA I have ever read. His points about the playoff's shaky officiating, free throw disparities, and Wade's unstoppability were right on point. He also highlighted the evolution of the game and I agree completely. Well done, Billy.

No, I didn't go to one of those bicycle classes at the health club. I was alcohol free, yet in the middle of a phone conference @ the office the room began to spin. After the conclusion of the meeting I returned to my desk and things got worse. I felt more and more queasy as the room continued to spin. I wrapped things up and proceeded to walk to my boss' office to let her know I was leaving. After a nap in my car, so I felt I could drive, I headed home. After a good two hours worth of napping I felt pretty good. It was just weird.
