Worth waking up for
Happy Wednesday, it feels like Spring
“People don't want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messes cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown.”
After the last big (by Missouri standards) snowstorm, I sat at my desk sipping coffee and watched the neighbors struggle to get their car unstuck. It took about 30 minutes. Two people stopped to help, gave up, and moved on.
Then a cop stopped in and after a few minutes of yelling, shoveling, gesturing, and unsuccessful maneuvering, he got in his giant police SUV and pulled up right behind their car. Ever so gently he drove forward and pushed their car out with his own.
Off they went, waving and yelling their thanks. Morning drama over. Parking lot back to its calm snow-covered state.
Anyway, that was a show worth waking up for. Thoroughly enjoyable.
