I was commuting into work today, 33 to 30 to I-69 to 14. About 6am as usual on I-69 between 30 and 14. I’m cruising along in the right lane, driving the speed limit, listening to them play the Star Spangled Banner on 101.7 FM.
There was a semi in the center lane beside me, pulling away , but crowding the lane marker between us. And just like that it started coming over hard towards me, no turn signal or anything.
I was close to the westbound 14 exit so I yanked my Ranger to the right. The Ranger swerved sickeningly but held on and I shot down the exit at 65 mph.
Whoa! I went west on 14, u-turned, and went back to my happy little office like nothing at all had happened.
And nothing had, it was just another day.
And it was just another reminder that it can all be gone, just like that, on just another day.
Love the ones you’re with, today.
1. Of course it was pulling away from me. I was driving the speed limit.
