over an hour as dozens of
sour-faced tourists in rented cars
inched by me as they turned onto
the 20 MPH highway, averting eye
contact or else looking at me as if
I were diseased. Didn't they know

to lose patience, a little voice inside me said,
"You're only upset because of your expectations."
That was true.
