54 whopping lights
! (Maybe 55. It actually is a bit complicated to count traffic lights as you are driving, trying to pay attention to the road and be a mother at the same time.)
And now you are curious as to when I encounter them??? Our drive to church. Yup! All 54 of them - no "ifs," "ands" or driving around them! (Take that back. Sometimes I cut off one of them at the corner of 29 and 14. Never mind what I said in the previous post about being a law abiding citizen! I'd rather be at church on time! Besides, I have to do that to get around all the people who are not turning right and should be sitting in the other lane, but that is another post! :-)
Back to the lights. . .The actual drive is between 27-28 miles which isn't bad - until you take the lights into consideration. Did I mention all 54 of them?! Sigh. . .Not a good prospect when you are pregnant and prone to car sickness! I have sometimes left for church an hour early and still pulled in late due to red lights!
Now I will leave the subject of other drivers alone. . . You know how they seem to be lurking in every lane and driving miles under the speed limit! Grrrrr. Sometimes I arrive at church feeling like I need to have a personal prayer meeting to rid the frustration of the drive. And those lights!!!! Did I mention there are 54 of them?! :-)
I told Troy I am making up for all the years my dad was a pastor, and I lived 30 seconds from the church.
So, how long is your drive?
