Nothing kills a nice, long, enjoyable holiday weekend like getting stuck in traffic on the way home.
So I’m happy to report that I made it back from White Plains, NY, to Boston in — get this — less than three hours. I left the diner at exactly 10:30 a.m., and when I looked at my cell phone when I reached the top of the escalator at Shaw’s, it was only 1:29. Amazing stuff.
And coupled with the fact that I made it from Boston to White Plains on Thursday morning in just about the same amount of time — leaving here at 9:06 and arriving at my parents’ place at about 12:08 — it’s a veritable holiday miracle. So, I guess I have beaten the Thanksgiving Traffic gods again.
Talk about a reason to be thankful.
