As has been the case with my life recently I barely remembered last night that I had a appointment this morning which was my interview to see if I pass the background requirements for getting a Global Entry card. I am to hear within 24 hours via email, and am cautiously optimistic that I will be approved.
Last night I attempted to change my life (for the better for a change) by stopping into Whole Foods for some staples needed to eat dinner at home. Shopping was a breeze and somewhat enjoyable, things took a temporary downturn on my drive home.
As I went to make a left turn from Glenwood onto a side street I saw a jogger immediately in front of me. He stopped like a deer in headlights, giving me the stink-eye an having no sympathy for the “I’m sorry” gesture I was making as he yelled at me. I never saw the guy because I was looking up the road for oncoming traffic, and on a dark night this guy was dressed in black tights and a dark brown hoodie pulled over his head, with not a hint of a light of reflective attire. Additionally, I always use my turn signals so he had to know that I was going to make a left-hand turn. Had I been in his shoes I would have assumed that I wouldn’t have been seen given the conditions and waited for the car to turn before crossing the intersection. Fortunately no damage was done other than to the confidence in my driving.
I’m starting to think that I should have locked myself into the house this week.
However I will be throwing caution to the wind tonight as I eat dinner with my boss tonight to celebrate his birthday.
