This morning I took a new route to work so that I could swing by the specialty cupcake store to pick up dessert for a Junior League meeting tonight.
Though it meant getting up a little earlier than usual, I actually got excited about the detour since I knew it would take me by some of the best spring scenery in town–rolling hills overlooking clusters of Bradford pears in full bloom.
As I continued my drive, savoring the sight and patting myself on the back for taking time to enjoy the little slices of beauty I encounter on a daily basis, I found myself stopped at a stoplight.
Behind a garbage truck.
Okay, that in itself isn’t so horrible. But implanted in the back of the truck, for some unexplained reason was this…
If I had a better camera on my cell phone, you’d be getting the real shot! So bizarre. And, unfortunately, my first hint that, spring beauty aside, today would definitely be a Monday.
I’m hoping those cupcakes make up for it!
