It’s early. But not early enough. Congestion is already building after River Road on the Inner Loop. Traffic is crawling. There is plenty of time for my meandering thoughts. An ad for Botox and microdermabrasion on WTOP reminds me I have a birthday coming up next week and I’m overdue for an overhaul. In the last year my neck has started to sag. I am beginning to look like Darcy. That extra flesh looks okay on a Dalmatian but not on a woman.
