It's surprising how dissimilar a day can be. I woke up early this morning to drudge into Brooklyn for a court appearance. Gina was not pleased. Weather was lousy, traffic was horrendous, and potholes were so large they almost swallowed Gina whole. Plus, as you can see, road-gunk was ubiquitous. Gina looks like she went to war.
The trip home was a different story. The sun came out and air warmed up. I had spare time so I decided to frolic and detour. I headed for local twisty roads I know from motorcycling. I punched "Sport Mode" (which turns on Gina's turbocharger), cranked up Lou Reed's best ("Rock and Roll Animal") and ran through the gears at high rpm. I felt like Niki Lauda in his prime. Hitting Gina's red-line was the sign I was doing something right.
Do you ever have days of both drudgery and fun?
