Green eggs and mud
Fall has come to an end.
Its the beginning of winter now.
Not only when its the first day of November but.....when you are on your way to work looking spiffy and you get splashed with murky water by some jerk on four wheels.
After years of repeatedly getting splashed you develop 'splash senses' and becom an expert in screeching to a stop and diving behind some other victim waiting for the bus.
Still its quite a surprise when the first splash of the season hits.
You fruitlessly wave your fist, mouth open in mid swear, forgetting the finger, vainly looking for something to throw at the car speeding away from you and finally end by cursing yourself for bothering to dress up in the first place. Sometimes a prayer for higher gas prices are uttered as well.
If you happen to be spider man/woman, you can sling some sticky web and pull the SUV back and flip him the finger properly.
Otherwise you could start carrying eggs in your pocket. But chances of that egg soiling your own pants/purse is infinitely higher than actually getting shot by a speeding car.
Greenslimy goo that can easily be stored in tiny plastic balls, handy for slinging and hit the backwindows of a receeding car. Try wiping THAT out of windows sucker!
Really! someone forget coming up with environmenally friendly fuel ideas and try and invent this handy device for pedestrians everywhere.
The four wheelers have been spared too many times.
Don't you think?
