Review by: katie rehkopf on Aug. 30, 2012 :
I relate to this story maybe more than I care to admit. It is funny the headtrip we give ourselves in certain situations. I become positively superstitious in traffic, believing that if I can just make it to the next light on the last green leveling 30 MPH, then I will get greens all the way home or some such nonsense. The incredible amount of space these neuroses take up in my brain has led me to begin meditating. I find chanting at a red light is the only thing that keeps me from obsessing over the state of the red light and what it might mean! This story put a lovely and humourously concise spin on our personal mini- insanities. Very fun and well-wrought.

This quick, but amusing, book about an experience we all share kept me reading until the end. I particularly enjoyed the Gauntlet paragraph--green Toyotas, indeed! I am hoping Ed does not learn his lesson too soon, as I would love to read more driving woes! Thanks for the laughs!
