And my apologies to the world.
I was leaving a certain Navy base today when I saw this beautiful F-18 gate guardian.
I wanted a pic bad, so when the traffic light brought everyone to a stop, I got my camera phone out, brought up the camera app, rolled down the window (despite the rain) and took a couple of pictures.
Of course, as I was doing this, the traffic light gave the green arrow for the left turn lane that I was in. I was oblivious, of course, until someone behind me in the line of waiting cars honked their horn. I looked up, realized what was going on, and shot forward just as the light went yellow and cycled to red.
I was the only one that made it though--all the people that were behind me had to wait for the next cycle.
I am so sorry, America...For that brief moment in time, I became one of the very obliviots (oblivious idiots) that I routinely curse here. I have shamed and dishonored myself and I feel seriously remorseful.
On the other hand, I got a pretty good pic, don't you think?
