Itís not that I think Iím cool, or that I try to look cool, or that I think itís possible for me to look cool even if I tried. Itís more that I donít want to look so totally uncool that people will notice. And I think driving around with a signal light out is totally uncool and likely to draw unwanted attention to myself. ďUnwantedĒ being redundant in my case, because Iíd really like to drive to the post office and back every day without being noticed at all.
Since the turn signal is also the daytime running light thatís always on when Iím driving, people were pointing and laughing at me as I drove down the street today with a one-eyed orange glow shrieking ďuncoolĒ as if it spelled it out in neon. Tomorrow, assuming the light is still out, Iíll get back to the Saturn dealer and see if just maybe they will see it, too, and take it upon themselves to do something about it. I will have my Kindle with me, and Iíll sit there and wait until they do.
Okay, maybe the pointing and laughing was all in my mind, but thatís how it felt.
