We have a large 'winter visitor' population this time of year in Arizona. Most of them are retirees. Older retirees. This morning I was behind two cars with out of state plates going v e r y slow - like 10-15 miles below the speed limit. I'm no speed racer but on a sunny morning I don't think the speed limit is too much to ask. Anyway, I said to myself, 'you've been driving for 40+ years, can't you put your foot on the gas?'
And then it hit me that if they were in their 70's (very likely) they would have been driving more like 60 years. AND, that I have been driving for 30 years. I know, how is that even possible? But it is.
Even more startling is that LM will be driving in 6 years. Again, how is this possible? She is just a baby (imagine the rolling eyes of a 10 year old at this point).
Time flies. Yes, it does. But it doesn't make everyone do the speed limit - which on the road I was speaking of is 35 mph...
