Is it just me? Or does today feel different? The post full-moon drivers do the goofiest things today--yet they're not annoying this morning. The sun is in your eyes as you drive to work and you barely notice; it makes you feel more like you're in your favorite seat squinting into the sun.
You look at the freeway signs and it dawns on you haw beautiful they are: Green, white, and the exit-only gold. They're perfect. you scan left and watch people zoom by in the carpool lane and starting chanting "Z, Z, Z!" You're happy today--just plain happy--because you're with your people; crowded shoulder-to-shoulder, fender-to-fender, bumper-to-bumper.
Those that ignore the "do not cross the double line" sign don'e bother you for once because you dream of doubles, ninety feet + ninety feet. People are hugging your bumper tight, and you think they must be an A's fan getting a closer look at the license plate: A's BBL.
And it's Monday and you feel good. Excited that the traffic allows you time to quiz yourself on the most important math: 77. 31. 3. Yep, you've got the names memorized; you've got this. It doesn't matter that it's a five-day work week because every evening you have plans.
So you smile, take a deep breath, cough a little because of your allergies, but keep smiling...satisfied and light afoot. Yes, it feels differently today. You flip up your green collar, imagine a few hours from now, and lip-sync with your favorite imaginary Blue's exclamation, "Play Ball!" Anything is possible today. Anything.
