Broken Legs

May 7, 2008

Some days start off worse than others.
Lately every day seems to do that.

Some days the crossing guard has blinders on and can’t see how LONG the line behind folks waiting to get into the school has gotten.
And some days are like today – a sea of cars surrounding almost everyone and no movement at all for twenty minutes save the crossing guard’s muscular over-confident arms waving wildly to let the one car pass that’s coming from his Apparent. Favorite. Direction.

Some years there is the Memphis in May celebration that shuts down a road or two throughout the month.
And some years it shuts them down for the ENTIRE month causing the downtown area to function like Eight Belles did this morning.

Oh wait, she’s dead.

Yes.  That.
