I had to wake up at 7 am to teach my class today -- a disgusting time for me -- but I did it, got to class on time, and gave a wonderful lecture. But then I had to face an almost 2 hour ride back to NYC, at a time when I was ready for a nap. I was driving along, a little drowsy,wondering if I'd have to pull over and sleep, when I came upon a big, bright yellow sign on the verge that read "BUMP."
Good God, I thought, the NY highway people know just what it is that I need to get through this drive... and how kind of them to recommend it right at this moment! Who says government never helps us out?
