Daily Commute Obervations
I find that about 88% of the vehicles are full of women, and that most of them tend to look about 47. They also seem to all look very haggard, and a little disheveled. You know the type - the ones in your office who are sporting the business suits from about 13 years ago, with the shoulder pads and large yellow gold jewellery? That never wear anything over a one inch heel, consistently have runs in their pantyhose, and that always look like they haven't had a decent haircut since 1985? (Not that there are anything wrong with those women - they are just the ones that seem to be commuting every morning.)
Anyway, so every morning I drive downtown in a sea of these women. The other 12% of the vehicles are made up of delivery trucks, construction trucks, City of Winnipeg vehicles, and transit buses.
But the commute home is what always boggles my mind.
It seems that sometime between when I start work at 8 and leave for home at 4, all of those women become men. During the drive home when I look around (still dancing wildly) I always notice that there are barely any women.
Suddenly there are Mazda Miatas with 63 year old men behind the wheel, SUVs full of 30 and 40 year old guys with a buddy in the front seat, dudes on motorcycles and street bikes, and good old boys in pickup trucks that don't look like they belong in the city.
Now here are my questions: When I drive to work in the morning, are the men still at home or already at work? Do the women just stay later than their required 8 hours?
Or is what I really think is happening, actually true...
...is the reason the men all look so disheveled and odd in the morning because they are actually all in drag, and by the end of the day are sick of being "all dolled up" and decide to just be dudes?
