Don't Run Over Me

And I won't make scary faces at you.

Here's what happened.

I set out on this morning's 9 mile walk. We got a cold front, so it was all windy and dramatic and cool. This was nice because the bikers don't so much like windy and cold so I could stomp in the bike lane unmolested. Much easier on the old knees than the sidewalk.

Anyway, a WIDE assortment of texting/drunk/applying-mascara/possibly-English-or otherwise-unfamiliar-with-our-driving-customs drivers attempted to kill me this morning by swerving around in and out of the bike lane. This is why I walk facing traffic. Sometimes I actually carry small rocks and things I can throw at cars whose drivers are occupied playing Words with Friends instead of watching the road.

So in the home stretch, a little less than a mile from the house, your understandably tired author sees an SUV make a quick little dart towards her.

Having had enough for the day, I quickly made this crazy combination gang sign/scary face/less than ladylike gesture.

Only to discover it was my friend Sam.

HA!!! Hilarious emails ensued. He said he actually died and came back to life from the scary look.

That'll show him. :)

I made this card for today's Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration site is soooo beautiful! I chose this coffee cup ensemble for my inspiration.

Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, Woodgrain, Spring Solitude Ink: Pacific Point, Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White Accessories: Black marker, ribbon (All Supplies Stampin' Up!)

What are you using for inspiration today?
