I’m not sure if I was insulted or complimented this morning.
It took me over an hour to get to work, which is kind of stressful. I’m not really enjoying my new work hours because the drive is so bad. But, I made it to the parking lot, parked, zipped up my too big jacket, slung my lunch bag and purse over my shoulder, and started the walk to the building.
I have to cross a major street to get from the parking lot to my work building. Today it is really windy, so all my very long hair was blowing everywhere. I kind of got it under control by the time I got to the stoplight. Where I was standing, waiting for the light to change so I could cross.
Along comes this truck with a business logo, with a man in it. He slowed down, was looking at me, and honked his horn. I was the only one at the stoplight at that time. I looked at the guy as he drove away and thought “Really? Did that just happen?”
I’m in my late 40’s. I’ll be married 20 years next month. I don’t think of myself (and probably never did) as someone guys in trucks honk at. I may think of myself as a hot mess, but not a hot mama (as one of my friends said I was in commenting about this).
Not knowing a thing about this man, except he is someone who will honk at a lone woman at a stoplight, I guess I should take it as a compliment. As Husband says, it is always best to assume good intentions, and I think that can apply to this situation. And it’s better than getting a creepy feeling, which is the other way this can go.
So today, I am a Hot Mama! Let the day continue on!
