“On the Road”/Driving
We’ve clearly established that, in the Suburbo, we spend inordinate amounts of time in our cars. One of the most emblematic institutions related to the Suburbo car culture is the Drive Thru! They are everywhere these days and, upon doing research on the Internet, I discovered that there are even Drive Thru funeral homes (for viewing), lawyers (in Manchester, CT) and, of course, gun and liquor stores (in the South)! Let’s face it, in the U.S. of A., we love our cars (we even create their own room in our homes --- the garage) and we obviously hate to get out of them if we don’t have to. So, some of this Suburbo installment is about the Drive Thru.
Two other challenges you can’t avoid in the Suburbo are drivers who religiously obey “speed limits” and drivers who don’t seem to understand some basic rules of the road --- like “right on red” is allowed in the suburbs (unlike New York City)! You invariably run into these drivers when you are most pressed for time, as you’ll see in today’s sketches.
While we could probably go on and on “discussing” the “On the Road”/Driving it may be time to transition to several other topics we encounter, on a daily basis, in Wilbur’s Suburbo.
Tune in Friday for a “transitional” concept related to life in paradise and thanks for reading!
