Down the Road
by Steve Mitchell
I’ve since quit driving with my left hand all up high the wheel, resting on top, cool and casual. A 25 years long habit broken because I read about air bags.
Now, I drive with my hands low and to the side.
Air bags can bust you up.
I don’t want my wrist broken. I don’t want the skin torn from my hand.
Don’t get me wrong – I don’t plan on using the air bag, but … you know.
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your best joke.
He knows that one.
I hear it
