Driving to Toronto from my home town for the ShesConnected Conference was 30 minutes of relaxed, cruising, enjoying the scenery, bopping to my new CD, and about 2 hours of white knuckled, muscles tensed, don’t want to get lost or crash kinda driving.
During my drive..I had a few feeble wishes….
-I wished my stupid “loaded” car had GPS.
-I wished the bumper of every car displayed where that driver in front of me was going! Then if I located a driver who was going to Spadina and Queen
in the middle of the circle of hell Toronto I could just tag along like a puppy and stop trying to read the directions I had printed from MapQuest.
-I wished the “estimated times” on MapQuest were a little more accurate.
-I wished I didn’t have to pee. I now understand why so many people end up peeing in empty Tim Horton’s cups. It’s true!! I didn’t, but I get it. Traffic in the city sometimes resembles something akin to a parking lot.
-I might have wished for a time machine.
-When I reached my destination, I wished my big beautiful SUV had a wee button on it to turn it into a suitcase ala Jetsons. Parking in downtown Toronto is not for the timid.
-I wished for a valet and he appeared!
-Then I wished I had left the CD player cranked up high blasting some Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez, you know, for the Valet. (because he might like it, and I think it would have been funny)
-Now that I’m here, I wish I had printed off directions to get home….
