Today while I was on my way to work, the wackiest thing happened. I was trapped in stop dead traffic on I-4 when one of my all time favorite songs came on….now, I have to tell you, I’m kind of a Broadway nerd. If it’s a musical, I probably have the CD in my car. So it shouldn’t surprise you that ‘Wicked’ was my CD of choice this morning.
Of course the weather is beautiful, so I had all the windows down, the moon roof open, and the volume up! I might have been jamming out a bit with a crazy dance and all, when I hear someone say something. I look over and I see this very intimidating black truck with flames and skull decals. Inside the truck, there was a man with a most impressive Duck Dynasty level beard staring at me. Really staring at me. He didn’t smile.
I thought for a minute about turning down the music, but when I heard “But as someone told me lately, everyone deserves a chance to fly,” came across my speakers, I just turned it up and sang even louder – because my motto is, if you can’t sing well, sing loud!
So imagine my surprise when I suddenly hear this guy next to me bellow, “And if I’m flying solo, At least I’m flying free!” He never batted an eyelash and we almost finished the entire song together before traffic started moving…
So, at the risk of sounding like a missed connection ad from Craigslist, you sir, are amazing. I wish we were friends. And thanks for reminding me not to judge people by their appearance, because they might surprise you!
