Parking

I think that my current car, a Toyota Corolla SE, makes me look like I'm driving a sports car. And I think that I'm the only one in the world who thinks like that. 

However, these days, the parking lot spaces are a lot smaller than they used to be, especially those that you need to drive straight into: like in shopping centers, and in business centers.

I think that these lots conform to the building code (parking code), standards. Sure the cars are smaller, but really? This small? These vehicles are all mini cars.

In fact, the spaces are so narrow, I can't even get myself in or out of the car. And if a truck, van, SUV parks next to me...I need to wait until the owner/driver returns to get into my car.

Once a larger vehicle encroaches on the parking space next door to it, it's like playing dominoes...one door hits a car, hits a car, hits a car.

Bottom line...now that the rains have begun to diminish, I need to ride my bike to avoid those lots.

At least I'll be wearing my lighted (40 LED lights) helmet and a safety vest so others can see me.

I also think that I look like a moron, in my get-up. But I'm a moron that people can see.

Live richly, and safely, marilyn
