January 6, 2011
Still struggling with the post-holiday morning blues, I haul myself during the morning rush hour across the county line to a doctor’s visit in Manhasset. The universe must be paying me back for good behaviour at some point in the past because the trip across Suffolk and Nassau counties takes just a little more than an hour, which is pretty amazing when you consider that my normal morning commute to Northport, half the distance, takes 45 minutes at a minimum. This is the unexplained, unsolvable riddle of driving here: some days you move, and others days, you sit and wait.
