I take it all back

From my previous post about traffic and bad drivers and people who honk, you'd think that the people around here don't have any hearts at all. I've posted about this before, but it happened again this afternoon and my faith in the DC drivers has been renewed. I'm heading home - 6 lanes of traffic....and everyone is stopped. There are 6 Canadian geese walking across the highway. And I mean walking. More like sauntering. They are sight-seeing. Taking their own sweet goose time. And they are not fearful. They are not intimidated. They are walking. To the other side of the road. And all the cars are at a stop. Nobody - and I mean nobody - is trying to hurry them along. Nobody is edging up close to them with their bumpers. In fact, when I looked to my left, I saw drivers smiling. When I looked to my right, I saw drivers chuckeling. They just let them cross the road and just maybe it took the edge off of a lot of people. I know it worked for me. And the beauty of it all? The only honking came from.... you guessed it.... the geese. :)
