So many complaints today about the traffic and the gridlock due to a visit from Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah. It seems everyone was effected except me and I’m still trying to figure out how and why. I did drive around town today and it was during the gridlock hours, but I felt it was normal traffic. So for some reason I magically avoided all gridlock today while so many people suffered in the heat! It’s kind of funny, no? Not funny ha-ha but still…
Have no fears my fellow Ammanites. Saudi Arabia will reimburse you for all the stand still gas you wasted today.
Also, I’ve been kind of “car lucky” lately. I was almost in an accident where I felt normally the car should have spun out of control, but it was as if some magnetic force kept it going straight. The next day I was the last person in a long line of parked cars who was about to get a ticket but as the police man started writing the ticket for the car behind me, another car driving by beeped at him and he got into some kind of fight with a taxi driver, giving me ample time to flee in the chaos. Later on that day, I came to a red light at a busy intersection where for some reason I stopped in the second lane from the left of a four lane light even though I knew I needed to be in the right because I was supposed to be taking the first right turn after the light. Moreover I somehow managed to choose the lane that had the most car pileup while the one I was supposed to be in was practically empty but then filled moments after I came to a stop. But then the lights opened and somehow the right lane became stuck due to one of the drivers and my lane was not only moving quickly but now becoming the new right lane.
Other tiny car miracles have happened to me lately, such as approaching red traffic lights and have them instantly turn green (imagine experiencing that 4 times in a row). So I’m taking this as a divine sign that God is waiting to bitch-slap me soon. Whenever things go right, something big always goes wrong.
So I’m watching my back.
