"Cars are boring, they come and they go....yawn."


I stood outside and watched the cars go by, they look as if they are robotic machines.  I wonder if the drivers are aware of their surroundings?  There are a lot of zombie like drivers today, just staring blankly ahead.

"Weather forecast : awful."


I waited all day for the heavy rain, and thunder.  All we got was a light shower and a car honked its horn.  Close I suppose.
