I forget to thank Natalie for the rides to and from work. She has to do
all the driving. I should remember how stressful that is in Houston.
For a city designed specifically for automobiles, Houston is a pain in
the ass to drive through. There are places in Houston you can only get
to in a vehicle. The planners saw no problem with that design. Nat has
to put up with it every day.
I had to walk home yesterday through the weeds and passing cars. People
speed like mad on 1093. I've walked in the street a couple of times and
nearly had people wreck while trying to avoid me. It isn't like I'm
walking down the middle of the road. I'm as far over as I can get. The
weeds are taller than I am. There are holes in the ground and things to
trip over all hidden. I need to find some herbicide and start spraying
it along the road. Maybe I can salt the earth for good measure.
