It had already been a goofy week.
After the work-day tree cutting adventure, during which everyone in my office building was trapped inside due to the fact that both driveways were blocked by tree service vehicles, I was looking forward to my Friday off.
Sure, I was scheduled for my Remicade treatment, but I always sleep through that, and I really needed a good nap. Getting there turned out to be a mini-adventure. It’s nearly summer, in Buffalo, where there’s only a tiny window of time appropriate for — road construction.
Gotta fix those potholes, repave those streets. Just another minor annoyance to be dealt with.
The parking lot at the medical center was being repaved, and with only one entrance in and out, it was a bit tricky weaving around to the back. Just one more nuisance.
After my treatment, I was a little woozy, as usual, despite the lengthy nap, and I was looking forward to getting home – a drive of only a few minutes, not in heavy traffic, so all was fine. The parking lot pavers had finished for the day, and getting out was no problem.
But as soon as I turned onto the street, I found myself blocked by an entire line of geese and goslings. For once, I had thought to bring my little camera, just in case.
Meanwhile, the driver behind me was getting all twitchy because I was stopped in the lane of traffic and she couldn’t go around. Really? No way am I going to run over a whole string of baby birds just to save that driver two minutes or so. Just ain’t happenin’.
Just another day in suburban WNY. (Have I used the word “just” enough in this post?)
Enjoy your weekend, everyone. It’s beautiful here; hope your weather is gorgeous, too.
