Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Road Rage

…to the man in the maroon VW polo on the off ramp this morning. I am very pleased your life is sooooo important that you don’t even require blue lights to break the rules of the road. I am also thrilled that I get to share the road with someone whose time is clearly far more valuable than mine, such a celeb you must be. Were you rushing off to cure infertility this morning? Was your wife in labour? (crazy, because she wasn’t even in the car)

Because you see, dear sir (and I use the term dear out of respect for fellow sarcasm lovers the world over), when you illegally turn left from the right turning only lane, you disrupt the flow of traffic, you cause further congestion, which only worsens the very queue you decided was not worth your patience. In the words of Trevor Noah, “Why, why, why?”

At least this morning I composed enough not have spike my blood pressure. But well done, hero in the maroon VW.
