|Driving in that kind of traffic is for people far less lazy than me (Photo by Michaella Kumke)|
Here's what happened when I drove a car...worse yet when I drove an Econoline van for work......the car or van NEVER had gas in it! My children are permanently scarred from me constantly running out of gas...on the way to school, gymnastics, the mall, friends houses....you name it, we ran out of gas to there. Why? I told you, because I am lazy! And tires...don't even get me started on tires! They are never just "low on air" there is always a bigger issue there....nails, old and worn, glass...whatever.....it was in my tires! And there is this thing under the hood called an engine....good grief...the only engine I worry about now is my body, and I make sure it is in good working order all the time!

Once the car is warmed up, thawed out, windows scraped you have to drive to the corner and WAIT to turn right so you can drive 2 blocks to WAIT to turn left and sit in a long line of cars. This means you have to leave earlier than if you commute by bike, which means you have to work faster at getting ready and that just doesn't bode well for someone who is lazy!

You see, it is so much easier by bike.... I ride across the park straight to the street and have a clear shot downtown......I ride right up to The Coffee House, lock up my bike, get my tea, ride right up to the front door of my store, take my bike to the back room and it's done! Boom!
That's the way to get to work if you are lazy like me! BUT you don't have to be lazy to commute, just inspired! Either way, it works!
