I was checking things out online, when I stumbled across a link to this youtube video, NY5 - Camillus Bypass. I, like an idiot, actually sat and watched the whole thing. Driving. Just driving. Maybe I don't drive the bypass enough. Maybe I'm so bored that I couldn't think of anything better to do. Maybe I forgot to pay everyone to be my friend this week, have no life, and couldn't resist the temptation of possibly seeing their cars in the video (didn't happen). Now, there is a moment of humor when the type across the bottom of the screen questions why the speed limit going into the village is only 30 mph, on a four lane road, going downhill. I'd kind of like to know the answer to that myself. I usually just avoid that section of road by getting on the bypass! That's why the bypass was built, right? To pass by the village, instead of having to slow down and go into it? The big question, really, is WHY? It's just a highway, and not even a particularly pretty one at that. It's not even difficult to drive. All I know at this exact moment in time is it's Wednesday afternoon, I've got no appointments later, the kids, cats and puppies are all taken care of, and if I follow the bypass into the village it will take me to MaNamara's Pub. I think I'll call my friends and go meet them there. Then I can pay them their required friendship price (one round should do it), and claim to have friends for another week. LOL - it's 5:00 somewhere!
