So… I’m navigating a Super Target parking lot, my emotions running the gamut from “frustrated” to “astounded” at the amount of traffic bottled up on the way in and out. Parking places weren’t hard to find, and my son and I got a really good one, but the trip back out was proving to be a test of my patience.
I’m waiting to turn left, and the guy on the straightaway I’m trying to get on to rolls down his window, looks me in the eye, and yells “I LOVE YOUR COMIC.” He then points at my license plate to indicate how he figured out who I was.
I couldn’t hear him, because my window was still up, and there were about a million automobile engines idling, revving, roaring, and/or seizing up within earshot. I smiled, mouthed “THANK YOU” and gave him a thumbs up.
Yeah, this pretty much made my day. I think it’s the first time I’ve been noticed on the road by a complete stranger.
