Bumper to Bumper
Here I am captured in this irritating street where all I can do is listen to music and look at Facebook. I am waiting for cars to start moving and continue with their destination.

I desperately needed to get out, but I was stock bumper to bumper with no way out. How did I not know nor did I not hear about this parade on Anderson Street? Why didn’t anyone inform me of this event? Now, I am sitting here stuck wasting time listening to...
