The 405 is packed with cars, as usual. Five lanes of revving the engine, moving 5 yards, and then hammering the brake and squeaking to a stop. Exhaust hangs heavy in the air, and the smell suffocates even the most luxurious Mercedes stuck in traffic. Next to the Mercedes, a dilapidated old truck sputters, loaded down with workers on their way to the job site. The weather is the usual SoCal 80 and sunny, and everyone wants to get to where they can enjoy it. Collective frustration sets in, and a round of honking horns echoes, aimed not at other cars, but at the universe. One woman sits in her car, enjoying her breakfast sandwich. She finds her favorite pop station, and itís her new favorite Taylor Swift song. She bobs in her seat, waving her arms and singing at the top of her lungs. She could stay here a little longer.
