Surprisingly, one of the things I like about working is the commute. After the slight monotony of the highway, I enjoy looking at the businesses and people on the surface street that takes me to the office. Although I’m driving 35 mph (ok 40), I’ve taken passing notice of a store window that displays lingerie. The display changes periodically so it has managed to keep my attention. Numerous times, I’ve thought to myself, “Oh, that’s cute” or “Maybe I should stop in sometime”.
After I don’t know how many months of driving to work, I finally looked higher than street level. Imagine my surprise when I realized that I’ve been window shopping at ‘Fantasy For Adults Only’. I immediately began to laugh hysterically as I imagined the scene of a middle aged, suburban woman parking her minivan in front of the store hoping to beat the morning rush. Then I laughed even more as I pictured my shocked face after entering the store and finally realizing where I was.
Ah…it’s the little things like this that keep me smiling.
