Am I That Rusty?

There I was lined up in the left turn lane waiting for what, the red to turn to green arrow? Or was it already green and I was waiting for space? That's the thing, I don't exactly know what the situation was.

For sure I was stopped.

I watched two Mini-Coopers coming up the road and I was wondering if they were together, or racing, or just coincidentally together. I like Mini-Coopers.

I looked up and the light was green so I started my left turn. That's the thing - it wasn't a green arrow. It was just green.

And a truck was coming toward me.

It was a terrible mistake that I quickly was able to correct.

But that's the thing - it was a terrible mistake.

I might be that rusty.

This is a classic case of "Mini Cooper Temporary Blindness Insanity."

Don't let your meat loaf.

You must have been suffering from a lack of caffeine in your system.

I DO think it had something to do with a lack of caffeine.

When I get in my car, I feel the automotive equivalent of wobbly riding that casual riders feel on those rare times they get on their bikes.
