i love my morning commute. a quick walk out my door to the bus stop. a smooth express bus down lake shore. and a few stops down michigan avenue to the wrigley building. and a pretty walk across the bridge to work.
its lovely. 25 minutes. i like it.
today however was like the description above. today was 55 minutes.
now i know a lot of people have longer commutes every day. but we just sat there. on lake shore. just hanging around. stand still traffic.
for whatever reason, when it rains, the commute is always longer. therefore, you just leave 15 minutes early. no biggie. but today. no rain.
this is so not a big deal. really. i have a book. and music. and the internet. it was just an atypical morning.
oh! and traffic was not due to the bridge being up, but just kind of really like this illustration by doug rief and the view from our building!
