Today I saw the first official sign of the spring season. And I don’t mean that the Canadian Geese were heading home or that I saw the first robin of the year. After all, those are stupid birds, and I just don’t care. No, neither of those are the first official signs of spring.
Today was the first day that I was able to drive home with the windows down and the sunroof open. I love driving like that, wind blowing through the car, my music playing loudly (in this case some classical music), and just having a nice stress free ride home. I know from experience that other drivers blaring their music are annoying, but I don’t care. And truthfully, I don’t think my music was that loud, at least not today. It’s not like I was playing punk music, this was classical music I was blaring. So today I drove home with the window down, music playing, and that is when I saw the first official sign of spring.
My car has so many loose papers in it. Most of them are my gaming lists that I have played over the winter. The back of the car is a total mess. And you never really know how messy your car is till you drive a few miles with the widows down. The sheets of paper blowing all over the car were actually a distraction. Hell, the noise they made was almost louder than the music I had blaring. Some of the papers actually went from the “trunk” to the front seat where I caught them before they flew out the window.
Again, it was a fun drive, but that was really the first sign of spring. It was also a sign that I desperately need to clean the MINI. Inside and out.
Finally, spring has sprung. At least till the next snowstorm.
