Me and My Mega Commute:

My fifty-five-mile commute, in a 2007 Accord (I call her “Jane Honda”), takes me anywhere between seventy minutes (wildly speeding) and a hundred and twenty (stuck in traffic) each way. I know every pothole, casino billboard, and abandoned deer carcass between Princeton, where my husband and I live, and Passaic County, where I work. I have cultivated a special relationship with the anchors of the BBC World Service. I’m surprised when I’m not in a car: out jogging on weekends, I sometimes catch myself checking my side-view mirror.

Someone who fantasized about clipping pedestrians and beating old ladies to the front of the croissant line?

– There are these things. Called helmets. Someone invented them. You might want to look into it.

This. This has been my week.
